The Spanish Economic Association (SEA) aims at promoting the dissemination of scientific knowledge in Economics, by organizing congresses, promoting publications and, in general, through any other means leading to that goal.
This goal requires a commitment to the SEA’s core values of intellectual and profesional integrity, honesty, accountability, and transparency. This document establishes the following Code of Professional Conduct for all SEA members:
- SEA members should behave ethically, honestly, and with integrity in all their profesional activities.
- SEA members should behave in ways that encourage the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas. This requires an inclusive and respectful environment where ideas are considered on their own merit.
- SEA members should not engage in discrimination in their activities, whether based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, social condition, sexual orientation, disability, health condition, marital status, parental status, genetic or physical condition, political affiliation, ideology, or filiation.
- SEA members should not harass any person. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, unwelcome conduct that creates a work environment that a reasonable person would consider demeaning, intimidating, abusive, hostile, or offensive. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome explicit sexual solicitation, physical advance, or implicit sexual solicitation, such as verbal or nonverbal conduct that is sexual. Racial harassment includes unnecessary, exaggerated, or unwarranted attention or attack, whether verbal or nonverbal, because of a person’s race or ethnicity.
- Concerning persons over whom SEA members have direct or indirect supervisory, evaluative, or other authority, SEA members should not use their position to coerce or manipulate, explicitly or implicitly, any such person for personal, economic, or professional advantage.
