International Advocacy

The Board of Deputies maintains relationships with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Department for International Development and the Prime Minister’s Envoy on Post-Holocaust Issues in order to promote issues of concern to Jews both in our country and beyond. We are the credible point of contact for London’s diplomatic and international community, meeting with dozens of embassies and high commissions to discuss and draw attention to a number of issues including antisemitism and extremism, post-Holocaust restitution, religious freedoms and relations with the State of Israel.

The Board of Deputies is the UK affiliate of the European jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress and takes part in co-ordinated advocacy efforts and regular missions, delegations and meetings convened by these bodies. We also maintain an association agreement with the American Jewish Committee (AJC), with whom we run an annual reception for the diplomatic community in London.
