Bias Information and Education
Although we hope that you have not experienced a bias-related incident or discrimination, we do know that bias situations can occur within our community and in Stockholm.
DIS takes bias incidents and discrimination very seriously, so we developed a tool for you to inform us about bias-related incidents involving you or another DIS student, whether at DIS or in the public.
Should you encounter situations where you feel discriminated against, e.g. by the police, at a nightlife venue, or elsewhere, find out how to inform DIS here:
