The Arab Alliance for Digital Rights is a network of organizations from outside of Western Europe/Anglophone countries. Global and International NGOs and individual members that work on the issue of digital rights can participate in this Alliance as supporting members.
As supporting members, global/international NGOs, and individuals:
- Can work in the background. Their name can be present on the website as supporting partners but they will not represent the network in press conferences, to the press, meetings with other platforms, or in any other forum. They should refer Alliance members who are considered local or regional organizations to press requests about the alliance.
- Can not apply for funds that would be in direct competition with fundraising being done by the Alliance unless it’s in a partnership with other members.
- When it comes to the voting process, global and international NGOs and individual members cannot have a role in final decision making, they can offer comments or ideas.
- They can attend meetings and participate, provide facilitation support at meetings, direct research support, and share contacts.
