Review and Guide

Gender-specific violence knows neither educational nor income boundaries, and also the university is only a reflection of society. In collaboration with the Coordination Office for Equality, Diversity and Disability, we compiled information and contacts where you can get information and advice if you are confronted with violence in your work environment, or if a person commits violence against you yourself.

Towards a Safe and Respectful University Culture for All

BOKU signed the Call for Action to End Gender-Based Violence


On November 25, BOKU raises an orange flag together with numerous other organizations - Austria-wide and internationally - to draw attention to gender-based and structural violence.

Awareness campaign

BOKU supports the annual campaign, which starts on November 25 with the International Day of Violence against Women and Girls and ends with the International Human Rights Day on December 10. It thus draws attention to the right to a life free of violence.

Flag instead of energy consumption

Due to the current crises, this year the campaign is foregoing the lighting of buildings and raising a flag in orange - for example, to draw attention to the sobering reality of high homicide crime rates and the need for targeted and preventive measures.
