About François Rivasseau 

François Rivasseau was appointed Deputy Head of the EU Delegation to the United States in April 2011. Prior to joining the Delegation, he served from 2007 until 2011 as the Deputy Head of Diplomatic Mission at the French Embassy to the United States.


Mr. Rivasseau has spent much of his career working on disarmament, security, and multilateral affairs. Following an early tour at the French Embassy in Colombia (1986-1989), he served as the head of the NATO desk in the Strategic Affairs and Disarmament department at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1993, Mr. Rivasseau became the head of political affairs at the Ministry’s United Nations Directorate. Two years later, he moved to Geneva to serve as the Deputy Permanent Representative at the French Mission to the Conference on Disarmament. During his time in Switzerland, he took part in negotiations over the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and the Ottawa Convention banning land mines. In 1998, Mr. Rivasseau was appointed the Deputy Spokesperson and Assistant Secretary for Information and Communication at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; he was promoted to Spokesperson two years later.


In 2003, Mr. Rivasseau returned to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva as the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of France, where he chaired the Geneva Forum. In 2006, he was elected for a year president of the Third Review Conference on the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, which restricts the use of inhumane armaments such as mines, lasers, and incendiary weapons.
