Organization and Governance

A governance for peace, anchored in the fight against poverty

Since its founding, ATD Fourth World has worked to build governance structures that will allow everyone to take an active role in the decision-making process. All our different members are invited to share their knowledge and experience. Our whole organization depends on the collaboration and dialogue between people of different social, cultural, and generational backgrounds.

Our approach to governance currently forms the basis of a research project titled, “Overcoming Extreme Poverty: A Source of Learning on the Path to Governance for Peace?
