The Diplomatic Society

Welcome to the website of the Diplomatic Society (DSSG) !

The DSSG is an international professional and fraternal society of diplomats and consuls dedicated to advancing global peace, development and humanitarianism. The Society, a non-profit organization was founded in 1996 in the UN in New York and has 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization status.

The Archangel Gabriel is the Patron Saint of Diplomats, and the inspiration for the Society. He is recognized as “God’s Messenger’ by the Christian, Islamic and Jewish faiths, and as a universal
symbol for Interfaith Dialogue. Our motto is “Pro Deo Et Mundo” - For God and the World.

In furtherance of its mission the Society organizes conferences and training around the world and in cyberspace, and holds professional and social events at the diplomatic and consular corps level. While primarily a society of Catholic diplomats, the DSSG closely engages with brothers and sisters of all faiths. Members of other faiths are welcome in the DSSG provided they respect our ideals and traditions. Non-Catholic honorary members are members of the Diplomatic Society of the Archangel Gabriel.

Charity and faith are essential characteristics of the Society. Membership implies a duty to meditate with particular care on the love of one’s neighbor, the sick, the poor, emigrants, refugees, and all those denied their basic human rights. Members should profess, with all possible charity and humility the sentiments of noble and chivalrous generosity. They should serve as an example to their friends, families and community.

Humanitarian Diplomacy

The DSSG supports the advancement of Humanitarian Diplomacy. To this end we are
involved in active relations with major international humanitarian organizations and both governmental and non-governmental groups.
Among the main concerns of the Society is ensuring the usefulness and timeliness of humanitarian aid delivery. At both the global and local levels, DSSG members work with aid donors and recipients towards these ends. In particular, the Society supports the works of the UN White Helmets framework.

The Diplomatic Society is a international organization. International practice shows that persons and bodies other than states are often the subjects of international rights and duties, such developments are not inconsistent with the structure of international law. Civil Society Organizations such as the Society therefore enjoy international legal personality. Many of our members, as diplomats and consuls, are individuals with privileges and immunities protected by the Vienna Convention. The Society is pursuing formal registration with international and national authorities. As per the Vienna Convention on the Representation of States in their Relations with International Organizations of a Universal Character 1975
