It said that Minister Radovan Fuchs had sent a letter to the College of Rectors and the Council of polytechnics and higher education institutions regarding recent complaints of sexual harassment and abuse at several university faculties in Zagreb.

Establish an efficient mechanism against all forms of abuse

These decisions should establish mechanisms for an efficient fight against all forms of abuse, discrimination and harassment at higher education institutions in Croatia, the letter said.

“In light of the current events that create room for suspicion of cases of mobbing, discrimination and sexual abuse occurring at higher education institutions, I ask you to show zero tolerance towards any form of violence,” Minister Fuchs said in the letter.

Fuchs underlined that the Ministry of Science and Education, with its activities, measures and strategies, was continually encouraging the establishment of a stimulating academic atmosphere so that all participants in the higher education system could benefit from transparent, effective and safe participation in the education process.
