Off University Organisation
für den Frieden e.V.

is a charitable membership organization according to German Law, registered in 2017. Our annual assembly elects a board of three trustees to represent the association and to plan and oversee its work, and an ethics committee. We currently employ a small team of part-time staff and freelancers and engage lecturers/instructors on a freelance basis to deliver our teaching and research programme.

In our Code of Conduct, we define ethical rules that guide our fundraising policy, that define our partnerships and give guidance in case of conflict in the work place or in our teaching or research activities. The application of the Code of Conduct is overseen by an Ethics Board that is elected by the Annual Assembly on a yearly basis.
