Summary/Abstract: This paper focuses on the birth of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists (ICUU). The present translation (being the second part of the original paper) includes the origins of the ICUU, and the committees and associations that played crucial role in shaping the ICUU, and summarizes the background that created this more truly international body, the ICUU. David Usher, the first president of the ICUU, played a crucial role in grounding a world Unitarian council. Initially he encountered resistance from different UU leaders: there was an ongoing debate over whether this new body would or would not take over the roles of previously existing bodies. The 27th Congress of the IARF in Hamburg (1990), World Unitarian Summit in Budapest (1992), the birth of the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council (1993) all contributed to forming the ICUU. The founding conference took place in 1995 with the participation of 13 Unitarian or UU delegates over the world (the Philippines, Srí Lanka, Australia/New Zealand, Romania, South Africa, Great Britain, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Russia, the USA; plus a delegate from the EUU).
