About Membership

OCIC’s work, both internally and as a collective of members, is grounded in our shared vision of global social justice, human dignity and participation for all. Our policies and programs are guided by shared values and principles, including the Istanbul Principles for CSO Development Effectiveness.

OCIC does not tolerate sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment and has a duty of care to ensure that everyone engaged with the Council is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of identity, and is able to safely and equitably access OCIC. OCIC’s Prevention of Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment (PSEAH) Policy and Code of Conduct applies to all OCIC staff, Board, volunteers, members, partners, funders, contracted parties and representatives engaged or working with or for OCIC to provide services on behalf of the Council.

While we do not necessarily support or endorse all activities or positions of our many and diverse members, we encourage all members to work toward ethical and anti-oppressive practice, and to engage in dialogue and critical reflection with the Council on issues of collective concern and importance.

OCIC Membership represents a mosaic of organizations, networks and institutions, and individuals. Some operate on small budgets with few staff and volunteers, while others have significant financial and human resources. Recognizing these differences, annual fees are calculated based on the portion of your organizational, network or institutional budget devoted to international cooperation and global education (including administration/overhead), along the following tiers:
