Ending Gender-Based Violence in Academia

Bilbao, 23 – 24 October 2023


Within the Spanish Presidency of the European Council of EU, the Spanish Ministry of Universities is organising a conference on “Ending gender-based violence in academia”, 23-24 October in Bilbao. A conference designed to be a continuation of the one held in Prague in November 2022 within the Czech presidency which launched the Call for action.

Drawing on results from UniSAFE, the conference aims to draw the attention of the multiple forms of gender-based violence that take place in Academia, understanding the phenomenon, the scope of the problem and its causes, determinants, and consequences, as well as showing solutions and institutional responses, its limitations and potentialities, and presenting recommendations to tackle the problem.

The main audience to be targeted will be higher education institutions and research organisations as well as university organisations, including Rectors’ Conferences.

 The event will take place in person in Bilbao, 23-24 October 2023, at Bizkaia Aretoa-UPV/EHU.
