The IPC works with several governmental partners such as the federal government of Germany, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the city of Bonn, where it is located in. Collaborations include logistical and financial support as well as implementing joint events.
Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community
The Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community, which is part of the German government and responsible for sport, supports the IPC since the IPC has moved to Germany since 1999. Additionally, they partially fund projects like the General Assembly in Bonn 2019 or the Membership Gathering 2022 in Berlin.
State Government of North Rhine-Westphalia
North Rhine-Westphalia is one of 16 states in Germany and is the most densely populated. It is home to the Rhine-Ruhr region, one of the economically strongest regions in Europe. It is located in the west of Germany and the state’s capital is Duesseldorf. The former federal capital Bonn is also in North Rhine-Westphalia. The state government works closely together with the IPC.
City of Bonn
Bonn has been the previous federal capital of West Germany, but after the Reunification of West and East Germany in 1991, most government institutions moved to Berlin. Nevertheless, the city remains politically important since it has attracted several international organisations and hosts a big United Nations campus since 1996. The city of Bonn has provided the IPC’s first headquarters from 1999 to 2023 and supports the IPC in a number of other collaborations as well.
