AEPF International Organising Committee
The AEPF International Organising Committee (AEPF IOC) is the reference body for the AEPF.
The IOC has up to sixteen members – six from Asia based organizations and six from Europe based organizations and up to two regional networks per region.
The size and composition of the IOC is reviewed every two years.
In principle there is an aim to have a balance of members from Asia and Europe.
Membership is for organizations and networks supporting the Charter. It is not for individuals. There is no more than one national organization per country on the IOC. Regional organizations like Forum Asia and Focus on the Global South can be IOC members as regional networks.
In each region there should be no more than two regional networks who are members of the IOC. This means that the maximum number of members of the IOC is at present 16.
The IOC was initially constituted by organisations and networks that were committed to develop and strengthen the People’s Forum process since it began in 1996. They formalised this commitment and have subsequently enlarged the IOC.
