Impartiality Committee

In alignment with the Chapter III of the Constitution of the SLoCaT Foundation, an independent Impartiality Committee (IC) was established in January 2016 to help the Foundation ensure the impartiality of its governance and functioning.  The main task of the IC was to review the governance and funding structure of the SLoCaT Foundation,  and recommend any changes needed to improve the impartiality of the SLoCaT Foundation.

The appointed members of the first IC were Maryvonne Plessis-Fraissard (Chair), Michael Fahy and Henrik Gudmundsson.
