Combating sexual and gender-based violence
Sciences Po promotes a culture of respect, courtesy and equality between people. SGBV has many highly detrimental consequences on the lives of its survivors and, as such, will not be tolerated at this institution.
With a system that prioritises listening to and supporting survivors, Sciences Po has implemented a university-wide policy ranging from preventive measures to sanctioning perpetrators.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SCIENCES PO'S MECHANISM
BUILDING A CULTURE OF EQUALITY AND RESPECT
When they join Sciences Po, all faculty members make a commitment to adhering to the principles of mutual respect, dignity, equality and citizenship, including online. As of the academic year 2022/2023, all faculty members at Sciences Po will be required to complete a compulsory online training on SGBV.
Specifically, we remind faculty that:
- Relations between teaching and research staff and the student community at Sciences Po must remain strictly professional, including during extra-curricular events (conference dinners, study trips etc.).
- Interactions between teaching and research staff and the student community must take place within working hours in suitable locations.
To help prevent incidents of online harassment and cyber violence, Sciences Po’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) offers specific training for faculty members with regards to best online practice and the risks surrounding social media.
