How does an ambassador act?
Though they live in a foreign nation, ambassadors take no part of their host nation's political, religious or military institutions, yet the ambassador is expected to adhere to the laws of the foreign land. An ambassador visiting another nation knows well that the host government is not his own. He does not serve a foreign government, enter into its politics, try to eradicate the evils of its system, vote in its elections, join its army, or advocate for its causes. Yet he subjects himself to foreign laws that concern him while there, endeavoring to behave in a way that will best represent the interests of his representative government or organization. A good ambassador is objectively neutral.
What are the roles of an ambassador?
An ambassador is a organization or state's highest-ranking representative to a specific nation or another international organization abroad. An effective ambassador has to be a strong leader—a good manager, a resilient negotiator, and a respected representative of the organization he or she represents. A key role of an ambassador is to coordinate the activities not only of the civil service officers and staff serving under them, but also representatives of other interests or affiliates in the country. An ambassador may be charged with the duty of forming an organization chapter or if on an overseas mission, an embassy.
What is the job description of an ambassador?
Ambassadors represent the policies and interests of their home countries or organizations around the world. This is the highest-ranking diplomatic position, requiring the ambassador to attend and host events with foreign leaders and other representatives while promoting their organization's policies and interests abroad.
