The International Confederation of Wizards is a wizarding intergovernmental organisation, roughly equivalent to the United Nations. British seats on the International Confederation of Wizards are probably selected by the Minister for Magic, possibly subject to the approval of the Wizengamot.

The International Confederation of Wizards is headed by a person who holds the title "Supreme Mugwump". The first appointed Supreme Mugwump was Pierre Bonaccord. However his appointment was contested by Warlocks in Liechtenstein, due to his opinions on stopping Troll-hunting and rights for Trolls. Liechtenstein, who had been dealing with several nasty Troll communities at the time refused to attend the first conference, causing trouble for the new institution.

HistoryEdit

In 1692, the Confederation instituted the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy to hide the wizarding world from the Muggle world. After weeks of discussion, they decided on how the wizarding world would retreat into hiding, including the covering up of various magical beasts and eliminating them from the Muggle consciousness.

Following the night of large-scale breaches of the International Statute of Secrecy, Minister Millicent Bagnold addressed the Confederation of Wizards with the statement "I assert our inalienable right to party", a statement which eventually became infamous[1]

Sometime before 1991, Albus Dumbledore was appointed as a representative of the British Ministry of Magic to the International Confederation and became Supreme Mugwump, but was dismissed from his position following the Ministry's denunciation of Voldemort's return in 1995. He was restored as a member after the Ministry's acceptance of Voldemort's return, in 1996, but not as Supreme Mugwump.

In 1995, the International Confederation of Wizards was to hold a conference in Hemel Hempstead.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Confederation was originally called the International Federation of Warlocks in the first edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which means if this was used the organisation would have two names.
