DiscourseNet Board

The DiscourseNet Association | Mission and principles | Events | Publications | Links | Board | Webpage

DiscourseNet is a community that builds on the activities of its members. It aims to follow the principles of democracy, diversity, transparency and efficiency. DiscourseNet members suggest and elect the Board, which should reflect the diversity of backgrounds of DiscourseNet. The Board deals with a number of tasks, including website maintenance and development, internal and external communications, finances, decision on and planning of events and activities, publications, projects, groups.
