Gender equality, equal opportunities and diversity

At Lund University and at our Department

In the Lund University Policy for Gender Equality, Equal Opportunities and Diversity the following can be read under the heading aims:

"Lund University aims to be one of the very best European universities. In order to achieve that goal, the knowledge and ambitions of staff and students must be harnessed, and their different perspectives must be allowed to contribute to a creative environment for study, teaching and research. Gender equality, equal opportunities and diversity lead to improved quality in the University’s operations.

The University’s operations, founded on the strategic plan and the Discrimination Act, build on equality between the sexes, equal opportunities and diversity. This means that employees, students and those who apply for jobs or study at Lund University are treated and judged without irrelevant consideration to gender, transgender identity, ethnic origin, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age."

Efforts at the department

At the Department of Political Science a working group acts to ensure that all staff and students are guaranteed the right to a work and study environment where each individual's personal integrity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability and age is respected.

The group represents the department's various positions, professions and students and meets regularly to discuss how the efforts concerning gender, equality and diversity can be developed and improved.
