Dear members of the University of Jena community,
All members of the university community need to be free to study, work and pursue their research here without fear of unfair treatment. That also means that there needs to be a clear procedure setting out how people can get unfair treatment stopped, if it does unfortunately happen.

PS: The German title „fair.handeln“ of the first event is a play on words that we have not managed to adequately render into English. The literal meaning of „fair handeln“ is to act fairly. But „fair handeln“ also sounds exactly like „verhandeln“, which means to negotiate. This second meaning reflects our desire to bring different perspectives to the table and together.
