Mindful that there was a need for an international organisation to facilitate scholarly exchange on the subject of teaching academic writing in Europe, an informal association known as the European Association for the Teaching of Academic Writing (hereafter EATAW) held its first international conference in Groningen, the Netherlands, in June 2001. Prior to being formally founded as a non-governmental organisation in 2007, EATAW existed as an informal organisation by agreement of its members. The seat of the organisation will be that of its current Chair. All aspects of its functioning not specified in this constitution are governed by the relevant sections of Swiss law. This constitution was revised in 2014 and verified by the General Assembly at the EATAW conference in 2015.
