The Council  was originated  by the motivation to promote a genuine desire for reciprocal knowledge and understanding, based on shared respect and charity, hence an instrument of service, contact and cooperation between the Ambassadors.

The objectives are to promote justice and peace, the acknowledgement and respect of human rights, in particular the right of freedom of religion, and the enhancement of ecumenical and interreligious dialogue.

Its task is to analyse the issues of common interest in order to come up with solutions and to promote the study of the relationship between Religions and Diplomacy, while aiming to provide adequate guidance and support to diplomatic actions.

The Council organizes training courses for the Embassy staff in order to contribute to the development and awareness of the diplomatic mission.

Within its range of action, this Council  aims at influencing different governments to adopt efficient policies regarding poverty, hunger and populations’ progress

Among the members of the Council are Ambassadors chosen regardless of their religion or nationality. They work in collaboration with a group of Consultants, made up of experts coming from all over the world. The Council, headed by the President of the International Association Carità Politica, is structured in several sections and gathers once a year to discuss a general activity report and to coordinate all activities according to a shared perspective.
