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.

International Personality
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.

International Personality
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
