Main measures for the workings of PEKEA

Honorary Presidents
Bureau et Conseil d'administration

1) A constitution has been established in accordance with recommendations from the world launching conference in September 2002 in Santiago. This conference served as a constitutive assembly for the foundation of PEKEA.This constitution has been approved by the first general assembly during the onference in Rennes in December 2003.

After a promise of support from the city of Rennes, Marc Humbert applied for an "Association loi 1901" status as a non-profit organization to the prefecture d'Ille et Vilaine (local representative of the French Central Government ) which acknowledged receipt on March 7th, 2003. The association was registered as soon as it was published in the French "journal officiel" (on the 3rd of May 2003).

Our main activity is to elaborate and to disseminate knowledge regarding economic activities; this means, in line with our argument and founding principles, to build a political and ethical knowledge regarding economic activities for a planet for humanity and solidarity.

PEKEA members are individual members of three types:
P Professionals of production-dissemination of knowledge : researchers, academics and Phd Students from the social sciences and the humanities
E Experts as actors involved in economic activities that are organised in ways compatible with the objectives of PEKEA
C Citizens bringing support from the civil society.

We are looking for synergies, thus partnerships with all groups who share at least partly our approach and our objectives.
Associations of individuals and local authorities sharing the objectives and general argument of PEKEA have one corresponding member who is in the PEKEA Network of individuals. Neither trade unions nor political parties.

We are working at a world scale and are organizing a network of international relations and international meetings but are also promoting the constitution of local multidisciplinary working groups with individual participants (type P, E & C) and in cooperation with other organizations.

2) Structure is that of a French association loi 1901 (non profit organisation) with its Headquarters in Rennes, France. We got in July 2006 a consultative Status to ECOSOC, UN after our application has been screened by member States. Thus we are now an NGO officially registered as such.

For its operation:

There are a secretariat ( 4 members), an Executive Committee ( 7 to 15 members) and a General Assembly (for members having paid their membership fee). The composition of the secretariat and of the Executive Committee is in annex. First elections were organised in December 2003. During the General Assembly in Dakar ( 2006), we decided to ask the secretariat in place to prepare elections by electronic mail; they took place in July 2007; the following general assembly due to the necessity to postpone the world conference from 2008 to 2009 was organised at the end of June 2008 by electronic mail and approved a little move in the bureau; the present secretariat and board are in charge until the end of 2010.
We have set up an office with an assistant manager.

For the orientation and quality assurance : a scientific board whose members are coopted around those who have begun to accept an active role for launching PEKEA in Santiago.
