Defending your rights

University policy, research, teaching and the working conditions of academic staff are defined by different bodies that do not have the same competences (deanship, rectorate, canton, confederation, etc.).

Joining intermediary staff associations (at faculty and university level) is the best way of defending your rights and point of view regarding research and teaching in your field.

The contact details of the intermediary staff associations of the different universities are given here.

Many associations and discussion groups are active on the various campuses and also offer opportunities for debate.

What to do in the event of conflict, mobbing, moral or sexual harassment ?

There are mediation bodies in every Latin university to which you can turn in cases of conflict mobbing, or harassment. Trade unions can also provide information and assistance.
