Updates of the Blue Book



The publication known as the "Blue Book," entitled “Missions permanentes auprès des Nations Unies à Genève” (in French only), provides the contact and representation information about Permanent Missions, Observer Offices at Geneva, as well as composition of main UN bodies etc. It is available at www.unog.ch/bluebook.

The Blue Book is updated on a regular basis by the Protocol and Liaison Service of the United Nations Office at Geneva with the kind cooperation of the permanent missions and permanent observer offices.

Kindly note that
  • The list of staff of permanent missions and observer offices is determined based on communications that the Protocol and Liaison Office receives from missions and observer offices

      - all staff working at permanent missions and observer offices

      - members appointed only to the Conference on Disarmament or only to the World Trade Organization, which are now the subject of separate brochures.

  • Only members of permanent missions and observer offices who are holders of a legitimation card of the category B or C included in Parts I to IV of this directory
