nonpartisan in the existing political discourse.

The network shall be based on a pleasant and stimulating work climate. The
interaction between members should always be appreciative, respectful and
collegial. Discussions between members should be constructive; there is no
room for hostility and nationalistic opinions. (Sexual) harassment and
discrimination, including discriminatory or sexually based jokes, actions
and comments or any undesirable behaviour should be promptly dealt with,
addressed and brought to the attention of the WBAA Board and/or Service
Provider.

All WBAA members rights and obligations derive from the WBAA Statute, and
the WBAA Internal Rules and Regulations.

If financial resources are received directly for your project and other
activities, they are to be spent in a targeted and most efficient manner. To
prevent fraud, expenses should be documented whenever possible.

The following points are particularly important in terms of external
appearance:

  • Social media behaviour: When WBAA members make posts about WBAA
    topics (e.g. in connection with WBAA Projects), they must not post content
    that contradicts the principles of WBAA.
  • Use of the WBAA logo and promotional material such as the WBAA
    banner and flag: The logo may be used for all WBAA related activities.

All WBAA members are expected to abide by this code of conduct. Individuals
who are found to violate this code of conduct will receive an official
warning by WBAA and may be barred from participating in WBAA activities or
events. Repeated infractions, or serious cases will result in the
individuals having their WBAA membership revoked.
