Code of Conduct (CoC)

EuroDIG is about 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 EuroDIG hosted activity you agree to:

  •  Treat all members of the EuroDIG community equally, irrespective of nationality, gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, disability, age, or sexual orientation; all stakeholders of the EuroDIG 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 EuroDIG discussion platform.
  • Listen and respect the views of all stakeholders when considering EuroDIG policy issues. EuroDIG is a multistakeholder environment and those who take part in EuroDIG meetings 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 EuroDIG discussion processes.
  • Promote ethical and responsible behaviour. Ethics and integrity are essential, and EuroDIG expects all stakeholders to behave in a responsible and principled way.

Misbehaviour can lead to exclusion from our events and/or our digital tools. If you have been in a situation in which the spirit of the 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.
