The concept of an international secretariat is not new to the twentieth century. Interestingly enough, it preceded the establishment of formal and permanent international organization. In the past, an international secretariat comprised a group of officials who performed international functions of a continuing or temporary nature. These groups were relatively small and usually provided from the diplomatic staff of the states hosting international conferences. The essential duties of such groups were mainly making the necessary physical arrangements for meetings, preparing conference documents, and keeping records.
