International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians (ICJP)
The International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians (ICJP) is the global network of Jewish legislators, government ministers, and other elected officials. The forum aims to promote dialogue and collaboration between Jewish parliamentarians; to support the principles of democracy, the cause of human rights, and the rule of law; and to combat racism, antisemitism, xenophobia, terrorism, and Holocaust denial by those means available to legislators and government ministers.
The ICJP strives for the creation of an enduring peace in the Middle East and works to protect the welfare of Jews and Jewish communities worldwide. The forum provides for the exchange of best practices and seeks to address the challenges facing Jewish communities worldwide.
The newly relaunched ICJP convened for its first consultation as part of the 16th World Jewish Congress Plenary Assembly, on 12 May 2021.
