The Department of International Magical Cooperation was a division of the Ministry of Magic which, as its name suggests, tried to get wizards from different countries to work together. It functioned similarly to the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the Muggle world.

The duties of this department were to work with magical governments of other countries, set standards for trade, create regulations for things like cauldron thickness, interpret international magical law, work with Department of Magical Games and Sports on Triwizard Tournaments, be present at the International Confederation of Wizards, British Seats.[2]

This Department was established sometime between 1798 and 1811, by Minister Artemisia Lufkin.[1]
