Transgressive Behaviour Policy
All people involved in the Summer Academy treat each other with respect, taking each other’s physical and psychological integrity into consideration. They do not intentionally do or say anything which another person could find offensive and regard as a violation of dignity. People address each other with the terms of reference which they themselves prefer.
Any form of unacceptable behaviour – bullying, verbal and physical violence, racism and sexually unacceptable behaviour – and discrimination or neglect on the basis of gender, wealth, civil status, political conviction, trade union allegiance, language, socio-economic situation, class, outlook on life, religion, nationality, skin colour, ethnicity and migration background, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical and mental capacities and limitations will not be tolerated, including coercion via peer pressure. This applies to direct communication via words, images, actions, behaviours, and to online communication.
Participants are mutually supportive. Participants that witness discrimination, neglect or unacceptable behaviour do not look away, but try to stop it. They provide support to the victim. If they are unable to stop this undesirable behaviour or do not dare to stop it, then we ask them to report this behaviour, possibly as (anonymous) witnesses to an executive member of the Brussels Privacy Hub.
Participants respect the applicable VUB and external regulations.
