    Operational Guidelines

    The development of the Operational Guidelines

    First Step : from assistance to participation

    • 1975 « The struggle against poverty », the first AIC European Seminar (Belgium). The theme took the idea that poverty must not be accepted but must be fought against, including the need to participate in changes within society.
    • 1976 « Assisting with participation », this was the theme of the AIC International Council meeting AIC (Mexico); it promoted working not for the poor but with the poor.

    Second Step: from participation to self help

    • 1985 « Solidarity », (France) this appears significantly in the AIC doctrine, co-responsibility, brotherhood and participation between the volunteers with the poor.
    • 1990 « Operational Guidelines: Self-promotion, solidarity, training and communication » (Italy). The new concepts emerge, how culture affects the individual and how they think and how it affects their empowerment.
    • 1994: « Operational Guidelines: Spirit of solidarity and empowerment» (Guatemala). Poverty is a violation of Human Rights; it has to be fought by raising awareness about solidarity and empowerment.
    • 1998 « Operational Guidelines: To be a force of transformation within the association, facing poverty and within the society. » (Mexico) To become a force of transformation, we must change ourselves, the relationship we have with the poor and the culture of our society. ? 1999-2000: Activities of awareness and prevention at a global level to denounce injustices against women and defend their rights, fight against all forms of violence towards women (European Seminar Spain).

    Third Step: From self help to co-responsibility and empowerment

    • 2000: Exert pressure on structures and networking: need to work as partners and to network in order to influence society and promote justice and solidarity.
    • 2001: Implement a process of strengthening the AIC institution in order to be able to better respond to the global poverty of today. To achieve the standards set by the Operational Guidelines, AIC is engaged in self-evaluation, participative leadership, working with twinning and networking.
    • 2002 « Operational Guidelines: Social Co-responsibility, Institutional development and empowerment ». The present complex socio-political situation demands that the theme of peace is pursued and developed. The response of AIC is to fight against poverty and injustice, which are inevitable sources of conflict. Empowerment: everyone has the right and the capacity to use their own resources to instigate personal and social change.
    • 2005 “ Coherence, confidence, and political action “ Priority is given to the common theme « Women and Poverty ».
