Minister for Magic

Intentions

Governing the magical population of their respective country.

Affiliation

International Confederation of Wizards

A Ministry of Magic is the primary governing body of the magical community in many countries. Headed by a Minister for Magic, a Ministry of Magic is responsible for regulating and enforcing laws for the magical community, as well as keeping said community hidden from the Muggle world.

In Britain, at least, the term "Ministry of Magic" seems to be synonymous with "form of wizarding government", since the term is, on occasion, loosely applied to also refer to the Wizards' Council that preceded the Ministry.[1]
