ICF has worked since its establishment in 1980 to safeguard human values, tolerance, democracy, and the equality of all people both locally and internationally.

We act against prejudice, discrimination, racism, anti-Semitism, and contempt for mankind, and we work to attain diversity, integration with the majority population, and respect for mankind.

ICF includes both ethnic and multi-cultural associations. We work with a broad base to make our key issues visible. We initiate debates, inform decision makers, participate in media, arrange conferences and seminars, and steer various social and cultural projects.
