Universal Code of Conduct/Enforcement guidelines/Summary

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Enforcement guidelines summary[edit]

In this table, you can find a summary of the full Enforcement guidelines. It was created to ensure that every member of the community can understand the new guidelines.

WHO is responsible for enforcing the UCoC?[edit]

  • Designated community functionaries and bodies[1]
  • The Wikimedia Foundation
  • Event safety team members and people in similar roles
  • A new committee called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (aka the U4C)
  • The U4C will monitor enforcement of the UCoC. The composition of the U4C will be decided by the U4C Building Committee. The building committee will be selected in the same way as the previous UCoC committees. The outline prepared by the Building Committee will be voted on by the community

Local and global functionaries should understand how UCoC enforcement works even if they are not part of the U4C

  1. such as, but not limited to administrators or Arbitration Committees

HOW will this be done?[edit]

  • Local communities, affiliates, and the Wikimedia Foundation should develop and conduct training for community members so they can better address harassment and other UCoC violations
  • The guidelines also lay out recommendations for which parties should address what types of UCoC violations
  • The Enforcement Guidelines represent the boundaries of the kinds of behaviour communities should engage in to enforce and follow the UCoC

WHAT additional things need to be in place for this to happen?[edit]

  • Communities are free to continue to use their existing enforcement systems as long as they do not contradict the Enforcement Guidelines
  • The Enforcement Guidelines note that appeals should be possible and practically available to individuals who were sanctioned for UCoC violations
