Diplomacy is the foundation of international relations.
Consuls and other representatives of the state have to collect information about the host country and to bring to its management decisions of their government.
One of the important tools of politicians and diplomats is the communiqué.
The story of
In modern politics and paperwork forCommuniqué understand documented list of agreements / requirements and guidelines. Stable expression is also a "joint communiqué", as is often the communiqué is the result of politicians and diplomats of several countries at international conferences.
The very first prototypes of the communique dated 6thousands of years BC and are the result of the efforts of the Egyptian diplomats - scribes. They were drawn up in the presence of kings and various parts of Egypt were "the agreement of the gods" (the Pharaoh in Egypt was considered the son of the sun god Ra).
It should be noted that the widespread development of the communiquéWe received in the XX century, with the development of democracy and the media. Monarchs solved most of the issues in person, they are not required for this broad public support. Modern politicians and public figures are representatives of social groups, so they often need to appeal to the public.
Media and communiqués
Modern science refers to the communiquéofficial-business style. Journalists believe communiqué a form of a press release. Definitely, we can find similarity: an official document announcing the decision of the board of several organizations (countries). Besides, in most cases communiqué be published.
One of the communiqué of samples can be consideredcomposed by representatives of the English nobility and King John Landless "Magna Carta". The "Charter" spells out the basic agreement between the feudal lords and the British monarhami- specifically prescribed cancel any taxes and duties, in addition to the prescribed law.
Many people mistakenly believe this documentconstitution, but more accurately considered "Carta" communiqué, which led to its creation. "Charter" is not a law, but the impact on the creation of the British constitution. The document was drawn up on the "dead language theologians" - Latin. It can be said that "the Charter", which is not a formal contract, became such because of the lack of other documents such level. This trend is common in diplomacy so far - Communiqué are not international agreements, may become so, because of special circumstances.
How to make a communiqué
To compile the communiqué should be possiblebriefly and clearly explain the situation on a particular issue, whether it is summarizing the results of the summit, a conference or business meeting. If you are going to publish a communiqué in the media, you must perform two mandatory conditions. Firstly, the communique topic should be socially important (otherwise it was meaningless compilation work). Second, the communiqué should be placed in the relevant (with the right audience) editions.
