IFJ Statutes

The IFJ is governed by its constitution which was last updated at the 2013 World Congress in Dublin, Ireland.

The constitution sets out the IFJ’s leading principles, membership criteria, democratic structures and the rules for renewing its leadership and refreshing its working programme.

The IFJ Congress is organised every three years to elect a new board and approve IFJ policy and working priorities for the forthcoming congress period. These are set out in the IFJ’s Working Programme and Resolutions.
