Secretariat

The Convention and the Praesidium are supported by a Secretariat, which is headed by its Secretary-General, Sir John Kerr, former head of the British Diplomatic Service. The Secretariat provides assistance to all members of the Convention on all aspects of the Convention's work, in particular by preparing discussion documents for the Convention, drafting reflection papers, and drawing up syntheses of the debates. Its also assists the Chairman, the two Vice-Chairmen, and the "Praesidium". In addition, the Secretariat is responsible for the logistic and practical arrangements of the Convention, and is entrusted with organising the activities of the Forum.

Its members are drawn primarily from the General Secretariat of the Council, but include also experts from the European Commission and European Parliament Secretariat, as well as members seconded from outside the institutions.
