Declassified

DECLASSIFIED,  Extraits des cahiers personnels d’anciens diplomates canadiens/Excerpts from personal notebooks of former Canadian diplomats

Have you ever wondered what Canada’s diplomats do when they go to work in the morning; why they attend so many social events in the evenings – often with partner in tow? Reading through this collection of arresting reminiscences, you may think that there is no such thing as a normal day at the chancery.

In these often humorous but always informative pages, we have DECLASSIFIED some of the skill sets that diplomats employ for circumventing protocol or cultural constraints when advocating Canadian interests with decision-makers abroad and for managing relations with foreign media. We even unveil some snippets of Canadian foreign-affairs history that readers may wish to tuck away in their own aide-mémoire.
