The Structure of IDEA

The structure of IDEA includes the General Council (GC) which is the decision-making authority of IDEA. The GC elects in its meetings three governing Committees: Executive Committee (EC) - General Meeting Committee (GMC) - Accountancy Committee (AC).

The GC consists of all eligible IDEA members. The GC meets during Congresses and once between Congresses and discusses the principles and priorities of the actions, the budget and membership fees, determines the host countries for the international congresses and the IDEA Secretariat and empowers the Elected Officers according to the decisions taken on all matters. **

In 2020, the GCM was organised for the first time as a digital ZOOM meeting, due to the pandemic situation. These online meetings and online elections requested fundamental adaptations of the procedures usual in previous live-meetings, to ensure the internal democracy in IDEA. These procedural adaptations need improvement for future online decision-making processes.

Regionalisation of the IDEA structure

Over the years, IDEA members of a world region have formed informal regional networks: IDEA Europe, IDEA South and North America, IDEA Asia-Oceania and IDEA Africa.

Each network organises activities as suits best to the regional situation: the members of IDEA Europe organised since 2014 an annual meeting alternating in the different countries; IDEA Africa organised African Webinars since 2020; IDEA South America designed a map of all the contacts and operated actively in the WAAE; IDEA Oceania organised joined conferences and exchanges took place by participating in each other’s national conferences.

IDEA结构

IDEA的结构包括总理事会(GC),它是IDEA的决策机构。总理事会在其会议上选举三个理事委员

会,分别是:执行委员会 (EC) - 大会委员会 (GMC) - 会计委员会 (AC)。

总理事会由所有符合条件的IDEA成员组成。总理事会会议在大会期间以及一次介于大会之间举行,

讨论行动的原则以及优先事项、预算和会员费用,以及确定国际大会的东道国和IDEA秘书处,并就所有

事项所作出的决定赋予当选官员权力。**

2020年,由于新冠疫情的影响,GCM首次组织了数字的线上ZOOM会议。这些线上会议和线上的选

举要求从根本上调整以往现场会议通常的程序,以确保IDEA选举内部的民主性。这些程序仍需要改进,

以适应于未来的线上决策过程。

IDEA结构的区域化

多年来,全世界范围内的IDEA成员们形成了非正式的区域性网络:欧洲IDEA、南美和北美洲IDEA、

亚洲-大洋洲IDEA和非洲IDEA。

每种区域性网络都组织最适合该区域情况的活动:欧洲IDEA的成员自2014年以来在不同国家交替组

织每年一次的年会;非洲IDEA自2020年以来组织了非洲网络研讨会;南美洲IDEA设计了所有联系人的地

图,并在世界艺术教育联盟(WAAE)中积极运作;大洋洲IDEA通过参与彼此的国家会议,组织联席会议

和实施交换交流项目。
