During this event, a survey was conducted among the participants. During this event, a survey was carried out among the participants: 95 people took part in the zoom and 84 in the survey; 85% women and 15% men; 50% AMU staff members, 42% students (8% other activity). Of the 84 participants, 51% were aware of AMU's anti-harassment, anti-sexist and anti-homophobic violence scheme before the round table.
Before and after defining sexual harassment and other forms of violence, the participants were asked if they had been victims or witnesses. Before the terms were defined, 39% thought they had been a victim or witness and 61% said they had not. After definition, 67% of people said they had been victims or witnesses of such acts. Of those who responded, 55% thought they had a clear definition of harassment and 88% felt that the definitions given matched what they thought.
During this event, the head of the regional branch of the Human Rights Defender was present. 92% of those who took part in the survey would be interested in setting up a Human Rights Defender's office at AMU and 86% wanted to be able to contact the Human Rights Defender in the event of a situation of discrimination (victim or witness). Following this meeting, 92% would be interested in holding another round table to discuss the subject further.
These figures highlight the importance of these mechanisms for informing and raising the awareness of AMU staff and students about the concepts of sexual harassment and violence.
