Abstract

This article seeks to chart how the role of the diplomatic mission (most often thought of as the embassy) has evolved, primarily since the Second World War, to assess how it can be most useful to the sending state or institution, and to identify some of the characteristics of successful envoys, on the latter score drawing on several interviews. The occasional footnote refers to some personal experience and observations.
