Inscribir un grupo de trabajo

To launch a new workgroup, please follow the procedure below:

1. Draft a description of your workgroup including the following compulsory elements:

  • Moderator(s): the workgroup moderator is in charge of ensuring the good functioning and steady activity within the group. S/he is the reference person for workgroup participants as well as for Globethics.net staff, and is responsible for the outcome of the common work. S/he will overview subscriptions to the group, give participants guidance on the content, and assist participants in their use of the workgroup online platform. The Globethics.net staff offers its assistance in all these duties. If needed, a moderator can share his/her charge with one or several co-moderator(s).
  • Description: a rationale and, if relevant, the historical background and relevance of the theme to current events or discussions in the field concerned.
  • Objectives/Methodology: the specific objectives to be achieved by the workgroup (i.e. what the group participants will actually be doing together) and the working methods deployed to this end (e.g., discussing, collecting sources, exchanging written contributions, drafting a common document, etc.).
  • Expected outcome: the most concrete outcome of group work (e.g., a common position or declaration, a plan of action, a report, a collection of papers, etc.).
  • Access policy: the expected number of participants, and whether access to membership is open to all Globethics.net registered participants, or restricted to a selected group of people or to individuals corresponding to selected profiles within the Globethics.net network.
  • Time frame: in principle, a workgroup's duration will be limited in time. Under very particular conditions it may be relevant to extend a time frame to a longer term, or to make it open-ended.

2. Send a proposal to Globethics.net Executive Director Christoph Stueckelberger including:

  • the workgroup description;
  • your biographical information;
  • the biographical information of the workgroup moderator(s).

3. You will receive an informed feedback, including possible comments and suggestions to integrate in your proposal. Send the revised proposal to Globethics.net.

4. Once the proposal is approved, a working space will be created for your workgroup on the Globethics.net website. Your workgroup will then be ready to receive individual applications by (selected) Globethics.net registered participants.

NB: Please note that the life of a workgroup and its good functioning are largely dependent on the quality and intensity of the moderation, which is easier to do in the short- and the mid-term. It is thus warmly recommended that your workgroup moderator be able to invest time and is motivated, and that the duration of your workgroup be limited in time.
