French diplomat and journalist, Barrère was France’s delegate in the European Commission of the Danube (ECD) for a brief, but decisive term in the early 1880s, when the institution was prolonged by the London Conference (1883). He was later appointed general consul at Cairo, ambassador to Stockholm, Munich and Rome. In the latter position he drew Italy closer to France in colonial disputes in northern Africa. He also served as a director in the Suez Canal Company.
