The work is conducted for example by Arbetsmiljö- och likabehandlingsgruppen at MISU. The group's purpose is to conduct goal-oriented work to actively promote equal rights and opportunities at the department as a study- and workplace.

Stockholm University has a policy for equal rights and opportunities. It says, among other things:

"Enquiries relating to accessibility, reception and treatment of people with different needs and backgrounds must be given a high priority. Equal rights and opportunities for higher education are a question of democracy and human rights. Everyone shall feel welcome at the University.


Employees, students and prospective students must, regardless of ethnicity, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age, be treated and received with respect and dignity. Discrimination, harassment and sexual harassment are unacceptable and must not occur at the university."

from Stockholm University's Plan for equal rights and opportunities 2014.

If you feel you have been the victim of discrimination or abusive treatment, contact the staff. You can also contact the members of MISU's 'Arbetsmiljö- och likabehandlingsgrupp', the head of the department or the Coordinator for equal treatment of students (Student services, Studenthuset).
