Legal regime for the creation, operation, financing, and dissolution of non-profit civil entities

In March, 2023, the Inter-American Juridical Committee adopted a Declaration of Inter-American Principles on the Legal Regime for the Creation, Operation, Financing and Dissolution of Civil Non-Profit Entities, document CJI/RES. 282 (CII-O/23) corr.3 which is intended to facilitate the operation of such entities throughout their life cycle, based on international and national standards and best practices, including appropriate law in OAS member states. The CJI document systematizes, updates, and consolidates the standards developed in the region based on an exhaustive study that is reflected in the comments on each principle.
