Gender-Based And Sexualized Violence In Higher Education

Guidelines, Standard Procedures And Position Papers

With their guidelines, standard procedures and position papers, science institutions, ministries, associations and universities set out the measures and processes they have established for their own institutions or for specific universities in the country. The materials aim to help preventing gender-based and sexualized violence in higher education, protecting victimized persons, holding perpetrators accountable, and to deal with reported cases of harassment.

Below you will find a selection of guides and guidelines from universities outside Germany. The commission “Sexualized Discrimination and Violence” of the Federal Conference of Gender Equality Officers in Higher Education in Germany (bukof) provides comparable materials from German universities in a compilation of guidelines and service agreements on its website.
