What’s a world assembly?

Every four years, Emmaus International invites all its member organisations – full and trial members – to get together. It’s a major event for the movement. The world assembly is the highest body of Emmaus International as it may exercise all the powers of the movement. It ensures democracy, since decisions are made at the assembly by all member organisations, which are each entitled to a vote. The assembly also sets the movement’s direction for the following four years, its priority areas and organisational strategies.
