The International Association of Judges was founded in Salzburg (Austria) in 1953. It is a professional, non-political, international organisation, bringing together national associations of judges, not individual judges, approved by the Central Council for admission to the Association.

The main aim of the Association is to safeguard the independence of the judiciary, which is an essential requirement of the judicial function, guaranteeing human rights and freedom.

The organization currently encompasses 87 such national associations or representative groups, from five Continents.

The IAJ is consisted of four regional groups:

  1. the European Association of Judges (44 Countries)
  2. the Iberoamerican Group (16 Countries)
  3. the African Group (19 Countries)
  4. the Asian, North American and Oceanian Group (12 Countries)

The Judges' Association of Serbia has been an IAJ member since 2008.
