Writing reports and other kinds of documents is one of the immediate follow-up tasks of participation in intergovernmental conferences, meetings and negotiations. This task is extremely time-consuming even more so for the conference delegate who does not possess appropriate tools or does not apply a comprehensive methodology. A successful report depends firstly on the specific body of knowledge which the writer possesses and secondly on specialized techniques which allow the written transfer of that knowledge to be as smooth and as effective as possible. Good and effective statements, reports and other written documents leave no opportunity for the reader to miss or misunderstand any facts or arguments.
