Recommendations for policy-makers towards ending gender-based violence

  • 1. 2023


Policy-makers at the European, national and regional levels can make significant contributions to promoting safe and inclusive environments in higher education institutions and research organisations by creating framework conditions and conducting concrete activities. Based on the findings from the EU-funded UniSAFE project, this factsheet makes recommendations aimed at reinforcing the legal and policy frameworks for ending gender-based violence.

Readers of this factsheet may want to consult UniSAFE’s toolkit section on concepts and meanings. Background information about the root causes of gender-based violence in research and academia are laid out in the White Paper for Policymakers and Institutional Managers, together with a presentation of the 7P model (Prevalence, Prevention, Protection, Prosecution, Provision of services, Partnerships, Policy).
