Diplomatic Chancery [fr] [sv]

Mission and presentation

The Chancery is the small team of diplomats who are the head of mission’s closest colleagues.

It includes counsellors, secretaries and attachés in various numbers: there are about fifteen in the Washington Embassy or in the delegations to the United Nations or the European Union; more often there are only one or two. Each deals with a particular category of dossiers. When the workforce is small, one member of staff will for example attend to the situation in the host country, while another attends to relations with France. When the team is larger, it branches out and members of staff are able to specialise. Within the particular sector, each one prepares the work of the ambassador, each also acts at his or her particular level on the instructions of the head of post. In a multilateral mission, each official is responsible for one or more commissions. Usually the ambassador brings the team together every morning to check progress and divide up the work.
