Government of the IGO Institution
Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is a union of States, united by sovereignty, human rights and humanitarian missions, as an inter-governmental organization (IGO) possessing official statehood in its own right, as a sovereign subject of international law. As “inter-governmental”, by definition, IVU itself is essentially a collective “government” for implementing the sovereign joint operations of its Member States.
The Government of IVU operates by a constitutional separation of powers with statutory checks and balances, and is comprised of the following primary branches:
Representative Council of Member States (RCMS)
The Representative Council of Member States (RCMS) serves as the primary Legislative Branch of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), governing its general policies and programs for international operations.
Member States, who hold voting rights, include countries, nation states, other sovereign subjects of international law, and inter-governmental organizations (IGO).
Participation by Member States is primarily through their activities in the working sessions and voting meetings of the Representative Council, which establishes and oversees the Departments and Commissions of the IGO institution.
Office of Secretary General (OSG)
The Office of Secretary General (OSG) serves as the primary Executive Branch of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), as the management side of the Directional Secretariat.
The OSG functions as the highest authority for general operational activities and administrative governance throughout the institution, and for coordination of interrelated operations of its autonomous IGO official bodies. Its primary responsibility is to uphold and advance the humanitarian missions of the institutions as effective participants in the international community.
The OSG is the chief governing authority of the institutions, answering only to the Office of Inspector General and the Representative Council of Member States.
High Council of the Independent Judiciary (HCIJ)
The High Council of the Independent Judiciary (HCIJ) serves as the primary Judiciary Branch of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), governing its general public policies and programs involving the international Judiciary and public access to Justice.
The HCIJ functions as the highest authority for representing the independent Judiciary profession internationally within the IGO government, advancing the role of independent Judiciary institutions in the IGO and its autonomous institutions.
The HCIJ is independent from all other departments and institutions of the IGO government, answering only to its constituent accredited representatives and organizations of the independent Judiciary profession.
Office of Inspector General (OIG)
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) serves as the primary Security Branch of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), as the state security side of the Directional Secretariat.
The OIG functions as the combined Legal Department, Security Department and Investigations Department, as the highest authority for legal security and internal affairs throughout all levels of the institution and its autonomous IGO official bodies. Its primary responsibility is to provide internal operational security protecting critical infrastructure resources, and protecting the role of independent Judiciary institutions supported by the IGO as an external Judiciary security agency.
The OIG is independent from the Office of Secretary General, answering only to the Founding Board of Trustees and to the High Council of the Independent Judiciary.
Advisory Council of Member Institutions (ACMI)
The Advisory Council of Member Institutions (ACMI) serves as the primary Advisory Body of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), functioning as its Board of Advisors for feedback and guidance on public policy trends and industry developments affecting its humanitarian operations.
Member Institutions, without voting rights, include private non-profit organizations, religious and educational institutions, and international non-governmental organizations (NGO), representing a particular sphere of specialization, body of expertise, or operational capabilities.
Participation by Member Institutions may be enhanced by accreditation to Special Consultancy Status with the Directional Secretariat, or Observer Status with the Representative Council of Member States.
Organization Chart of the IGO Government
Ignita Veritas United (IVU) as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO) has its own collective Government, which is based upon the traditional doctrines of constitutional “separation of powers” and “checks and balances” in customary international law.
The Government operates through its three conventional branches: (1) Legislative Branch – governed by Member States supported by Member Institutions; (2) Executive Branch – representing and implementing the policies of the other branches; and (3) Judiciary Branch – operated by the independent Judiciary profession having jurisdiction over the other branches.
The Autonomous Official Bodies of the IGO are supported by the official authorities and institutional infrastructure of the Government, but operate separately and independently.
The IVU Organization Chart is a visual summary of the IGO Government, as a condensed overview of its Sovereign Constitutional Charter.
Constitutional Charter of the IGO Government
The Government of Ignita Veritas United (IVU) operates on the basis of its constitutional Charter, which establishes the official legal entity of the inter-governmental organization (IGO), connecting it with its inherent official authorities as a sovereign subject of international law, at the supra-governmental level of conventional international law.
The Charter thus legally serves as the official international “registration” and “incorporation” of the legal entity, backed by the governmental authority of its constituent Member States. The Organization and its IGO Official Bodies and institutions thus do not require any further permission nor recognition by any particular country for their valid legal entity status.
The IGO Charter is not merely some political declaration, but rather is a Sovereign Constitution, as a legal instrument which effectively invokes official powers and authorities under conventional international law.
Like any Constitution, the Charter is written in plain language understandable by the general public, but fully presents the detailed legal bases for its official capacities. This Charter also includes quotes and source references of specific provisions of international law with clear explanations, conclusively proving all powers and authorities.
