JDC International Centre for Community Development

Challenging ideas, changing practices

/ About Us

The JDC-International Centre for Community Development (JDC-ICCD) is JDC-Europe’s research and evaluation unit.

Founded in 2005 by the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Buncher Leadership Programme, JDC-ICCD is devoted to providing an in-depth perspective on the phenomena of Jewish community, identity, and social welfare. Through applied research, JDC-ICCD analyses ongoing trends and changes in the Jewish world, while measuring and evaluating the impact of community initiatives in the field.

The Centre generates meaningful and scientifically constructed data that can influence decision-making processes for JDC and for Jewish communities and other stakeholders across Europe.
