Universal Code of Conduct/Discussions

Universal Code of Conduct

This page lists current, past, and future discussions related to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC). If there are relevant discussions that are not on this list, please add them! The timeline provides an overview of the UCoC process.

As part of Phase 2 of the process, there are multiple consultations with volunteers. The community consultations will inform the initial enforcement proposal draft and the draft before it is finalized.

Current status edit

Here is what is currently happening with the UCoC project: Now that the policy and enforcement guidelines are complete, the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) must be built to support the policy evolution and enforcement. A building committee was formed to create the charter for the U4C and guide the election of the first U4C. Read more on the implementation of the Guidelines and the U4C Building Committee.

Phase 2 global consultations edit

Phase 2 of the UCoC project began with local language consultations. These were facilitated discussions with target language communities in discussion channels and platforms frequented by each of those communities. A comprehensive summary of these consultations was released in April 2021.

As our movement grows, community voices are needed to help shape the pathways to enforcing the UCoC that address the diverse needs of individual communities. The project team encourages communities to regularly share their experiences, ideas, and learnings with behavioral policies here on Meta, in consultations and discussions, or via email.

Discussions regarding the UCoC continue to take place on Meta-Wiki:

Phase 2 local language consultations edit

Local language consultations for Phase 2 of the UCoC project were held from late January to early March 2021. They discussed how to enforce the UCoC with 11 target language communities in discussion channels and platforms frequented by each of those communities. (Please refer to the FAQ for how the target language communities were selected.) The discussions were facilitated by Foundation contractors. The findings of individual language outreach are at:
