A young speech writer in the French Foreign Ministry learns about the political world
After graduating from ENA, the École nationale d’administration, Arthur Vlaminck lands a job as a speech writer in the Foreign Ministry. Existing senior advisers do not welcome a talented newcomer who may become a competitor, but his abilities are recognised by the Minister and, most important, by Maupas, the career official heading the department.
