What do diplomats actually do? That is what this text seeks to answer by describing the various stages of a typical diplomat’s career. The book follows a fictional diplomat from his application to join the national diplomatic service through different postings at home and overseas, culminating with his appointment as ambassador and retirement. Each chapter contains case studies, based on the author’s thirty years of experience as a diplomat, ambassador, and high commissioner. These illustrate key issues such as the role of the diplomat during emergency crises or working as part of a national delegation to a permanent conference, such as the United Nations.

What Diplomats Do examines all aspects of the life of a diplomat, contrasting his or her work in an affluent, friendly country with that in a developing country and one with a hostile government, noting the impact on personal and family life, personal security, as well as the privileges and drawbacks of serving as Ambassador. Also covered is the potential influence of the individual diplomat in formulating and carrying out his government’s foreign policy decisions.
