EuroDIG Support Association

Excerpt from the statutes

(revised version as of 10 June 2016)

1. EuroDIG Support Association

A European-Swiss not-for-profit association according to Swiss Civil Code, Art. 60 to 79, was created on 15 June 2012 in Stockholm, under the name “EuroDIG Support Association” (hereafter “the Association”).

The term not-for-profit is defined as follows: The Association only retains any profit to reinvest it; it reinvests it primarily in subsequent annual EuroDIG events and to a certain extent in the activities of the Association itself. The Association does not distribute profit to individuals at the end of the year. Otherwise it is defined similarly to a nonprofit organisation or association.

The European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) was created in summer 2008 in Paris and organised annual events from October 2008 to May 2011. After four successful editions the organisational structure was consolidated, inter alia by the creation of the Association. EuroDIG understands itself as the European edition of the global United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF), which was created by the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva (2003) and Tunis (2005). Annual IGF meetings have been held since 2006 and the IGF’s mandate was extended at the WSIS+10 High Level Meeting at the UN General Assembly in New York (2015).
