Diplomacy and peace. Bibliography

Diplomacy exists to permit useful communications among states and IGOs to minimize conflict and maximize cooperation. Diplomacy is one of the oldest areas of international law evolving under customary rules which culminated into written conventions by the early 1960s. Diplomacy often relies on the help of third parties recognized in the UN Charter such as mediation and conciliation. Diplomacy’s operating conditions include modern travel and communication that allow ambassadors to be by-passed. Embassies and consulates both enjoy immunities, but the latter have somewhat less protection. The headquarters of IGOs also possess immunities as do states’ ambassadors to these IGOs. Calling ambassadors home or closing embassies is a favorite act of retorsion by an unhappy state.
