This website ( uses mostly pictures taken by our staff, institutional partners, external colleagues and friends. We are making efforts to provide all information concerning authors and organisations that hold the intellectual property rights. Some of the information was lost during the 2014 and 2015 cyber-attacks against our websites.

In some cases, we bought high-quality photos from istock and shutterstock and transformed them in order to fit our needs (for sliders). These photos are not exclusive nor intended for commercial use. These pictures are not signaled in any way because of the same cyber-attacks. We will try to include them as soon as we recover them from a 3rd party. The same applies to the Public Domain pictures we used in our sliders.

For all the other pictures, drawings, illustrations and cliparts, here is the authorship information:

Responsibility. A Journal of Ethics in Organizations, Professions, and Society: The slider of this page uses a picture released by the United States Air Force with the ID 120117-F-YC711-025 (source), which is part of the Public Domain. Picture taken by Senior Airman Andrea Salazar (U.S. Armed Forces) during a visit paid by NATO Training Mission – Afghanistan leadership to two Afghan women-owned textile businesses that manufacture items for the Afghan National Security Force. Kabul, Afghanistan, January 17, 2012.

Lobbying for Integrity slider represents a crop of the famous painting of Liborio Prosperi, called “The Lobby of the House of Commons” (1886). The entire picture is available on Wikipedia; unfortunately, without credits.

Our Content

We experienced several situations where individuals or organisations just “borrowed” information from our training or project descriptions. We were happy to see that others appreciate our work, but in many cases the information was distorted and resulted in confusions and deep misunderstandings. For this particular reason, we encourage anyone who wants to use our work to contact us directly. We will be more than happy to work with people that value quality; we know we cannot be everywhere, and building a network of specialists will help us all.

Some of the information regarding the MECOPP RO 2009-2012 project was distributed via our former partners from University of Bucharest, Faculty of Philosophy, Research Center in Applied Ethics. Given the fact that we no longer want to be associated with them, we consider the information published on their website obsolete.
