A permanent mission is the diplomatic mission of a country to a multi-national organisation like the United Nations, the European Union, the OSCE, or the International Atomic Energy Agency. Missions accredited to the European Union in particular are often termed permanent representations. Nevertheless they should be tagged with diplomatic=permanent_mission as they operate in the exact same way as other institutions of this kind.
