related policies.

The CoP FGM is a heterogenous group. We encourage a non-technical, accessible and simple communication,

Debates within the CoP : All subjects related to FGM can be debated in the CoP FGM. A discussion can be launched by any member or by the moderators. We encourage analytical and constructive analysis. The debate must stay focused on the theme and have as a main goal the collective learning of the group.

We commit to the following principles for a constructive dialogue within the CoP FGM :
* A well-meaning tone;
* Well-argumented opinions, if possible supported by references;
* Messages stating a clear object;
* Messages whose aim is to advance the debate, to provide new information and to favour the
collective learning.

The role of the moderators is to ensure the good operation of the CoP FGM, to subscribe and unsubscribe
members, to facilitate the discussion on the list and to ensure that the tone of the debate is well-meaning.
They can also propose subjects for discussion and provide clarifications. The moderators do not censor the debate. However, they may ask someone to change their behaviour or exclude a person from the list if their behaviour is opposed to the Charter or the objectives of the CoP.
