A project involves a clearly defined starting and ending point, a single event, or a single project. A project should lead to a scholarly outcome, whether a traditional publication or contemporary forms of knowledge dissemination. Supervision of at least one Director is required.

        Please read the following suggestions for managing your initiative:

        1) Administration and hosting of the initiative will embrace Max Planck Law’s commitment to tolerance, diversity, inclusion, and respectful colleagueship.

        2) Administration and hosting of the initiative will embrace Max Planck Law’s commitment to discursive community by minimizing hierarchy and promoting empowerment and participation of all members in the group. Ways to do this include:

        Empowerment: Everyone is confident to speak up, knowing their voice matters; good ideas can come from anywhere in the group; people are encouraged to play to their strengths; creativity is celebrated; growth is encouraged; and anyone can lead some of the time.

        Transparency: Being honest about who has influence and why; clearly indicating how decisions will be taken before they are decided; and distributing and rotating influential roles in the group.

        Respect: Ensuring that one person cannot demand that another person do something; being sensitive to coercion; developing any restrictions on behaviour with a collective mandate of the group.
