(to-be-ratified) CIA v.30.2

Dear Network,

We would like to announce to you that the Corpus Iuridicum AEGEEnse has been improved in order to make it grammatically correct and more coherent in general, we made several revisions in line with Statutes Article 29(4)

We have corrected orthographical, punctuation and syntax errors; we have also updated references and unified the way some words are used and written. Besides the General Rules, we have corrected outdated Article references in the Working Format of the Mediation Commission All the changes are marked in red (removed signs and letters) or blue (added signs and letters). We’ve also compiled a list of the changes at the end of this email, for the exact details please consult the document itself.

We originally planned to also use this opportunity to introduce gender-inclusive pronouns in the entire CIA, but we’ve come to realise this is outside of the scope of Article 29(4).

You are welcome to give feedback either there or via an email to us. Also please let us know if you have any questions or objections.

We address our warmest gratitude to everyone; especially Calvin Breakwell (AEGEE-Sheffield), the Comité Directeur, our assistant as well as subcommissioners who dedicated their time and efforts to improve the CIA together with us.  According to Statutes, this updated CIA will be presented for the Agora ratification at the upcoming Agora.

We will of course continue to try and improve the CIA and hope that this new one will be an inspiration for your activities, plans, and challenges for the upcoming term!

Sincerely,

Yusuf Tırıçoğlu & Heiko Kirchner
Juridical Commission of AEGEE-Europe
