This chapter describes the diplomatic body and its various protocols. The diplomatic body (corps diplomatique) comprises the heads and the diplomatic staff of all the missions accredited to a particular receiving State. The corps diplomatique has no legal personality or formal constitution. In most major capitals a diplomatic list, based on the notifications of appointments, arrivals, and departures required from missions under Article 10 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR), is published by the ministry of foreign affairs. The list may also include spouses and members of the families of heads of mission and diplomatic staff. Where one or more international organizations have their headquarters in a capital there may be additional diplomatic bodies consisting of the permanent representatives to each organization.
