Code of Conduct (CoC)

EuroSSIG is not only about teaching but also the place to foster dialogue which means listen carefully and speak openly by respecting each other and different opinions. We would like to offer a friendly and peaceful environment for every participant.

This includes in-person meetings, virtual meetings, mailing list discussions, etc.

If you are taking part in any EuroSSIG activity, including the Alumni Network, you agree to:

  • Treat all members of the EuroSSIG community equally, irrespective of nationality, gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, disability, age, or sexual orientation; all stakeholders of the EuroSSIG community should treat each other with civility, both face to face and online.
  • Focus discussion or remarks on issues rather than on particular actors, whether they be individuals, groups, organizations or governments, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
  • Act in a reasonable, objective and informed manner when participating in and/or using any EuroSSIG discussion platform.
  • Listen and respect the views of all stakeholders in EuroSSIG discussions. EuroDIG is a multistakeholder environment and those who take part in the EuroSSIG and inter-sessional activities should acknowledge the importance of all stakeholders and seek to understand their points of view.
  • Facilitate transparency and openness when participating in Internet governance-related policy discussions.
  • Act fairly and in good faith with other participants in the EuroSSIG discussion processes.
  • Promote ethical and responsible behaviour. Ethics and integrity are essential, and EuroSSIG expects all stakeholders to behave in a responsible and principled way.

Misbehaviour can lead to exclusion from EuroSSIG events and/or our digital tools. If you have been in a situation in which the spirit of this Code of Conduct was breached, please contact

The above CoC was drafted on the basis of the United Nations Code of Conduct to Prevent Harassment, Including Sexual Harassment at the UN System Events.
