International Relations


From May 26, 2001 the International Freemasonic Order DELPHI is a full member of the International Freemasonic Union “CLIPSAS”. The Union of “CLIPSAS” includes the Orders that signed the Strasbourg Appeal on January 22, 1961.
Following an initiative of the “Grand Lodge of Italy”, “DELPHI International Freemasonic Order” was a founding member of the “Uniting Bond of the Freemasonic Orders of the Mediterranean” (“Catena di Unione Massonica Iniziatica Mediterranea”), which was later named “Freemasonic Union of the Mediterranean” (“Unione Massonica del Mediterraneo “).
Considering that the Balkans have always been a progressive region for the development, circulation, and diffusion of humanistic ideals, and considering the traditional and societal ties existing among the Balkan peoples, The Grand Lodge Mixed of Greece of the International Masonic Order “DELPHI“ and the Grand Liberal Lodge of Turkey have decided to coalesce for the establishment and promotion of the Masonic, with absolute respect for the convictions and philosophy of each one of them.
Therefore, a Socio-cultural Union was initiated with the following goals:

1. protection and development of the culture and the initiation history in the Balkan Peninsula,
2. expansion of the Liberal Freemasonry inspired by the Balkans,
3. study of contemporary initiation and functional problems of the Freemasonry relevant to each member country.

The Union can realize its scope of activities through the work of its members and through annual meetings and conferences in countries that are capable of organizing them. The duty of the Union will also be to defend the Masonic identity of the signatory Obediences, considering that the universality and the equality of the Freemasonry emanate from the knowledge, respect, and cultural diversity.
The EMA (AME) is referenced in the Register of Transparency of the European Commission, and has several meetings a year with the president or vice-president of the European Commission, as well as meeting European Senators.

EMA (European Masonic Alliance) works for the Perfection of Humanity and for the construction of Europe based on the principles of secularism and respect for the values of peace, freedom, equality, solidarity, responsibility and, above all, fraternity. These principles and values form the basis for the creation of the European Union.

European Masonic Alliance broadcasts and promotes the values and principles of the Freemasonry, especially freedom of conscience and thought, as an inalienable right and ideals of democracy, fraternity, equality of rights for all human beings and human dignity, including the choice of procreation, conception and the termination of life. EMA rejects any form of discrimination and any form of infringement of freedom of expression.
Masonic Union of Mediterranean (L’Union Maçonnique de la Méditerranée) was created in 2000, with an aim of empowering the communion of Masons of the Mediterranean, on the basis of a common Mediterranean tradition, which was translated into Mason’s practice. Common roots have brought together Spain, Greece, France, Lebanon, Morocco, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Turkey, Portugal, Slovenia, Montenegro, and Croatia.

The vision of the Union is an open and modern Freemasonry, which embraces not only the old Europe, but also Africa and the Middle East, too. Because only such a Freemasonry is able to best promote the dialogue and ensure the future of tolerance, respect and sharing to those who suffer today due to wars, fanaticism and other forms of removal of the individual liberty.
