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 Copenhagen and 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 information about how to inform DIS here:
