Concerning the Center

The IRCJK is a place for study, seminars and conferences. In our facilities – meeting rooms, bedrooms, cafeteria – we offer a service of quality to our guests, groups and individuals.

Because of our location (10-20 minutes by foot from the Ecumenical Center, WHO, ILO, UN, Red Cross and most of the other international structures), we are a good starting point for all the people coming to study, work, or attend a meeting.

We host guests coming from all over the world (more than 120 nationalities each year). They are animated by the quest of fundamental values such as human rights, inter faith dialogue, justice, peace and equitable development. This is the reason why our Center has become a place of exchange, of international gathering and sharing.

Our vocation and our philosophy are manifested in our congenial and professional hosting as well as in the activities organized by our program commission. You can discover the work of the program commission by pressing on the button “program”.
