Inter-Country Committees

IntercountryLogo CIP

Inter-Country Committees (ICC) are activities of Rotary International. ICC promote contact between districts and clubs in two or more countries and increase fellowship and intercultural  understanding among the people of various nations.

Rotarians are encouraged to create new Inter-Country Committees to foster stronger ties between Rotarians, clubs and districts from different countries and establish networks across borders, continents, and oceans.

Inter-Country Committees should be promoted at RI, district and club meetings.

Mission of Inter-Country Committees

The mission of an Inter-Country Committee is to build a force that will encourage Rotarians to visit each other’s countries and homes, to strengthen friendships and projects so formed by encouraging clubs and districts to connect with clubs and districts in other countries, and to contribute to world peace.

Recommended activities are:

• sponsor new Rotary clubs

• develop a sister or twin club network between participating countries

• conduct Friendship Exchanges between the two countries

• initiate or carry out International Service projects

• initiate or carry out Vocational Service projects.

The role of ICC’s for peace and conflict resolution (one of the areas of focus of Rotary) has been relevant since the beginning (see history at ICC website) and ICC’s are true ambassadors of peace between countries.
