A.N.G.E.L. is intergovernmental, but not political; spiritual, but not religious. It promotes international cooperation, without global governance; humanitarian relief, without conditions or dependence; charitable support, without undue influence.
The purpose of A.N.G.E.L. is to represent the collective interests of its constituent Member States for their humanitarian missions, supported by participating Member Institutions contributing professional capabilities.
The core missions of A.N.G.E.L. include upholding national sovereignty, the rule of law and human rights, with emphasis on social justice, education, protection of women, children, families and minorities, freedom of religion, preservation of cultural identity, and self-reliance of natural resources and agriculture of peoples.
The missions for global humanitarian relief will be greatly enhanced and empowered by the authorities, privileges and immunities of A.N.G.E.L., as an IGO being a sovereign subject of international law in diplomatic relations.
Nations who join this IGO as a Member State have full and equal voting rights, benefit from collective international impact, strengthen independence, welfare and prosperity of all Member States and their peoples.
A.N.G.E.L. Member States are defined by Article 11 in the A.N.G.E.L. Charter:
Article 11 – Member States
The Organization is constituted by Member States, which may be countries, nation-states, other sovereign subjects of international law, or inter-governmental organizations (IGO).

Only Member States hold voting rights in the Organization, and all votes shall be equal, as all nations must be equal under international law.

The Organization shall promote the principles of national sovereignty as part of human rights under international law, to benefit the independence, welfare and prosperity of the Member States.
