Careers in Diplomacy

Diplomatic rights were established in the 17th century in Europe and have spread through out the world. These rights were formalised by the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which protects diplomats from being persecuted or prosecuted while on a diplomatic mission. Diplomatic communications are also viewed as sacrosanct and diplomats have long being allowed to carry documents across borders without being searched. Radio and digital communication have become more standard for embassies. Nations sometimes resort to international arbitration when faced with a specific question or point of contention in need of resolution. Formal and Informal Diplomats are in great demand if they have acquired expert knowledge of diplomacy.
