The International Catholic Movement for Intellectual and Cultural Affairs (ICMICA-Pax Romana) is a global community of Catholic intellectuals and professionals engaged in the world with a spirituality of action. Since 1947, ICMICA has united a wide range of individuals, small communities, national movements, and international networks with a shared commitment to support one another across borders and to integrate faith and action for a more just world. Inspired by the Gospel and the Catholic social tradition, our members are committed to the option for the poor, integral human development, interreligious dialogue, and the empowerment of women and young professionals. ICMICA is recognized as an International Association of the Faithful by the Holy See. With our sister movement, the International Movement of Catholic Students, we are an accredited nongovernmental organization with the United National System under the common name, Pax Romana (ICMICA-IMCS)
