1. To investigate and analyse scientifically, objectively and rationally claims of phenomena or manifestations that seem to be of an extraordinary and/or paranormal nature.

7. To respect the beliefs, choices and cultures of individuals but also to speak openly and without any prejudice in the interest of humanity.
8. To encourage human rights, freedom of will, equality of opportunities and of choice and unencumbered freedom of beliefs and expression.
