Last year it was decided that because of the name change of the IFUW into GWI the UWE Constitution needed to be adapted.
A committee was installed to adapt the UWE constitution and bye-laws. The committee was led by CER of Finland and lawyer Marita Salo and consisted of three other lawyers: Annelies Pierrot, Anne Negre and Georgeta Stoican.
Besides the name change of IFUW to GWI the UWE board proposes to adapt the deadlines for proposals and plans as it is now possible to communicate digitally. Also the possibility of electronic vote is part of the new constitution and lastly to accept associated members.
