Note: This article refers to the revival of these gathering that has occurred since 1998. For the early and ideologically related meetings under the same name, see 1960 International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties and 1969 International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties.

In 1998 the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) invited communist and workers' parties to participate in an annual conference where parties could gather to share their experiences and issue a joint declaration. The result was then an annual international conference is held every year under the name, the International Meeting of Communist and Workers' Parties (IMCWP).

The participants of the meeting have created a working group to address all aspects of organizing the meetings. As of November 2011, the working group is composed by the communist parties of Brazil, Greece, India, Lebanon, Portugal, Russian Federation and South Africa.[1] Additionally there are occasionally extraordinary meetings such as the meeting in Damascus 28–30 September 2009 on "Solidarity with the heroic struggle of the Palestinian people and the other people in Middle East". In December 2009, the communist and workers parties agreed to the creation of the International Communist Review, which is published annually in English and Spanish and has a website.[2]
