The United States Mission to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva advances U.S. policy on the front lines of multilateral diplomacy at over 100 international organizations in Geneva. U.S. Mission personnel engage daily on issues as diverse as refugee crises, global health, international law, economic development, trade, the environment, arms control and human rights.
We are a U.S. Diplomatic Post staffed by personnel from U.S. government agencies including the State Department, USAID, the U.S. Trade Representative's office and other agencies. Our office is called a "Mission" rather than an "Embassy" because we handle multilateral diplomatic relations. This is distinct from the bilateral work of the U.S. Embassy in the Swiss capital Bern which handles relations between the United States and Switzerland.
The United States has four Ambassadors in Geneva, more than at any other overseas post. They are the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva, the U.S. Permanent Representative to the World Trade Organization, the U.S. Permanent Representative to the Conference on Disarmament and the U.S. Representative to the Human Rights Council.
