Principles and governance


Docip’s work is carried out in a spirit of complete neutrality, collegiality and impartiality, and it is guided by the principle of horizontal governance.

To be a Docip volunteer involves putting one’s skills at the service of indigenous delegates during their participation in the UN arena.

Principles

Since its inception, Docip has conducted its activities following the principles of impartiality, neutrality, collegiality and non-interference. We respect the principle of self-determination of Indigenous Peoples; therefore, we conduct our actions and activities upon the request of indigenous representatives. They are also consulted when a project is being developed. We are committed to working together with indigenous representatives.

Governance

With respect to governance, Docip emphasizes a "horizontal" process. The two main governing bodies are the Docip Committee and the Foundation Board. The Docip Committee is an advisory, decision-making and operational body focused on issues related to human resources and financial and organizational matters. The Foundation Board is the highest decision-making body of Docip that deals with legal and financial matters. No action is taken without the consultation and agreement of the decision-making bodies. With regard to the in-house team, Docip advocates a horizontal governance model that is centred on the capacity for self-organization, cooperation and confidence among its employees, as well as with management and the governing bodies.
