President of the Council of Magic

Intentions

Governing the magical population of their respective country.

Affiliation

International Confederation of Wizards

A Council of Magic is a governing body of the wizarding community in some countries.[1] Headed by a President,[1] a Council of Magic is, most likely, responsible for regulating and enforcing laws for the magical community, as well as keeping said community hidden from the Muggle world, as is a Ministry of Magic.

Behind the scenes

  • The Argentinian Council of Magic is the first magical government in the series not to be referred to as a "Ministry of Magic". It is unknown precisely what distinguishes a Council of Magic from a Ministry of Magic, but it would seem that the former does not answer to the Muggle cabinet, while the latter does (to some degree, at least formally).
