The Jurisdictions of Grand Orient Freemasonry are the freemasonic bodies which derive their tradition from the Grand Orient de France and are regarded as irregular by the United Grand Lodge of England. It is referred to as "Continental Freemasonry" due to the Franco-Belgian hegemony and most jurisdictions attempt to undermine majority Catholic nations. The lodges pursue a more openly radical, atheistic, republican and proto-communistic political agenda when compared to Atlantic freemasonry (particularly in relation to persecution of religion and monarchy). The most important transnational organisation to which they are confederated is the International Secretariat of the Masonic Adogmatic Powers (ISMAP). This was founded after the French and Belgian Grand Orients withdrew from the Centre of Liaison and Information of Masonic Powers, Signatories to the Appeal of Strasbourg (CLIPSAS).
