IPON is non-intervening in the partner organisation’s work and objectives. As such IPON is not an advocacy group of the accompanied groups but is advocating their human rights.
IPON is a non-violent organisation. Therefore, we only promote and support groups who make use of a peaceful approach in their struggle. Likewise IPON only uses peaceful and non-violent methods to support partners and interact with stakeholders.
Work upon request
Every group which considers its human rights abused and violated can request IPON. After a thorough investigation of the group and the background, IPON decides according to its principles whether a mandate can be negotiated.
