The Global Board of Advocates (GBoA) is organized as a non governmental organization (NGO). Our mission centers on the continuity of the environment and humanity. However, this requires independence, autonomy, and isolation from our day to day social, economic, and special interest agendas to protect these sensitive priorities. This requires special global legal assurances which protect our mission’s agenda and it’s personnel.
To do this, we work directly with the world’s nations and states to provision agreements to aggregate GBoA sovereignty using our member nation’s sovereignty and influence pledges. This is a part of our membership requirements, managed and administered by our intergovernmental organization, The Alliance of Nations.
This pledged sovereignty and influence offers GBoA special protection provisions to ensure immunity, indemnity, and impunity while working on these critical missions. Further, this protects all GBoA personnel, institutions, facilities, and infrastructure assets. This protection is also provisioned to protect GBoA’s facilitating institutions, The Consortium Institutions. While these privileges apply mostly to the hosting of the GBoA related operations while within a member nation, it also provides some level of protection abroad.
These provisions provide GBoA personnel with a level of confidence that their work will be protected within a confidential work environment, with limited personal liability, secured mission objectives, assured work product continuity, assured personal safety and security, and a deterrent for external interference, threats, harassment, or intimidation.
The GBoA is exempt from international, national, state, and local laws, as well as political, economic, and special interest influences. GBoA personnel are not subject to a nation’s legal jurisdiction, arrest, prosecution, or incarceration. Also, GBoA personnel are not subject to local traditions, social norms, or practices which might interfere with their mission objectives or subject them to undue public scrutiny.
The GBoA exercises jurisdictional sovereignty over it’s personnel and institutions. Any individual or entity charged with a crime or detained within a hosting foriegn member nation will be immediately turned over into the custody of the GBoA’s intergovernmental organization, The Alliance of Nations (AoN). The GBoA is not subject to a hosting nation’s judicial system. Any investigations into possible crimes will also be referred to The AoN’s Judicial Services Magistrate. If in fact, the Magistrate determines a crime may have been committed, then they reserve the right to refer the matter to the suspect’s home nation, where they will face charges administered under that jurisdiction.
Any crime committed against GBoA personnel or it’s entities would be considered a felony offense by the hosting nation. It is expected that maximum punitive limits to the guidelines (plus enhancements) would be applied to perpetrators.
In the case where real property is involved with our mission workspace, the GBoA would designate those sites as sovereign territories separate from the hosting nation’s sovereignty and jurisdiction, just like an Embassy.
The GBoA, and its Consortium Institutions, do not rely on international, national, or state not-for-profit legal qualifications. This is due to inconsistencies and interpretations in international law, and the 194 nations and states’ bodies of law, rules, and regulations. Instead, we opt to exempt ourselves, providing assurance to all nations and states we work with, that we will closely comply with ethical standards and conduct consistent with a not-for-profit organization’s compliance and best practices. This specifically means that we do not pay taxes nor do we create any profits which are distributed to shareholders, founders, or benefactors, among other restrictions.
Our climate Innovators are not exempt from this non profit inclusion because they have separate capital agreements with the world’s people to incentivize achievement goals.
To emphasize our position, as we are working alongside 194 of the world’s governments, we are compelled to maintain an acceptable level of reasonable compliance and legal conformity while avoiding a myriad, and diversity, of national jurisdictional rules of law. In addition, our operations, pledges, accounting, and management are all transparent to the world’s people, as well as our transactional activity with contributing member nations. We are confident that we can reasonably meet a minimum satisfactory compliance, generally acceptable to the People’s best interests and our government partners.
In no way are we asserting any disrespect, arrogance, or defiance to our governing bodies. Our approach to self certification should be viewed as assurances to the world’s people of our independence.
