To develop and encourage long-term policies which safeguard the Arctic environment
To work for international recognition of the human rights of all Indigenous Peoples
The ІСС General Assembly is held every four years, bringing together Inuit from across the northern circumpolar region. Assembly delegates elect а president and an executive council, and develop policies and resolutions for the coming term. The General Assembly is intregal to the organization as it allows for discussion to ІСС, and strengthens the cultural bonds between all Inuit.
