They carry out the guidelines issued by "RIPE". Example: You and me belong on the first definition. If we think a policy (or the way it is being carried out) is wrong, we can raise the discussion, and eventually get it changed. If you cant change peoples minds (those in RIPE, not RIPE/NCC) you will not be able to change policies (because RIPE works in the meetings as a "raise-your-hand" democracy).
