LNVH Spring Symposium 2018: Challenging poor behaviour in academia: how to tackle and prevent intimidation and abuse of power
Power, abuse of power, harassment, and misconduct in academia. A theme that deserves attention, but is often dismissed as non-urgent, non-existent and therefore: non-important. Contributing to the taboo character of the subject, is that people simply do not dare to share their experiences for fear of consequences (or worse: lack of consequences). Recently however, the discussion about abuse of power in academia has certainly kicked off: in the fall of 2017, ScienceGuide published an article series on harassment. LNVH was consulted and contributed to the series, because we wish to underline that this is not a 'new issue that has 'suddenly' come up. We think it is important to, beyond the hyp e, focus on substainable attention for the theme and most of all: ways of preventing and dealing with abuse of power. More information about our programme and speakers can be found here, and keep an eye on your inbox for further updates. We hope to see you on May 25!

On 18 april, Utrecht University will be organizing the interdisciplinary symposium 'In- and exclusion; the role of institutions'. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers of different disciplines to shed light on the role that institutions play in the inclusion and exclusion of individuals and groups in modern society. Questions that are discussed include: Which roles have institutions and institutional change played over the last decades in the development of in- and exclusion? How do local governments use laws and regulations to either include or exclude refugees? How does the institutional setup of educational systems affect patterns of societal exclusion by socioeconomic background, ethnicity and gender? What role do the media play in the marginalization of women at all levels of society? And by which subtle psychological mechanisms are social inequalities between groups maintained? This symposium will be especially of interest t o scholars who want to discuss and learn about topics related to social inequality and social exclusion from multiple scientific perspectives. More information

LNVH board responds to remarks Hans Clevers
Last week, Hans Clevers (former KNAW president) raised eyebrows in reacting to a piece by Rosanne Hertzberger, about alleged nepotism in the new Oncode Institute for cancer research. In an interview, Clevers seeks the cause of gender inequality in Dutch academia in the way women deal with their working hours. The LNVH board responded to these remarks in an op-ed in NRC, see full text [in Dutch] on our website

Experts on intimidation and abuse of power in academia
The #metoo movement (again) shone a light on sexual intimidation and abuse of power within Dutch academia. ScienceGuide dedicated a series of articles to the theme, and universities are reconsidering their policies and attitudes. As LNVH, we try to act as accelarator and linking pin as much as we can. We notice a need for experts: people who (within their research) work on mechanisms of abuse of power, causes and consequences of intimidation, and optimizing processes within organisations to deal with intimidation. Any ideas and input are very much welcome via .

How do local governments use laws and regulations to either include or exclude refugees? How does the institutional setup of educational systems affect patterns of societal exclusion by socioeconomic background, ethnicity and gender? What role do the media play in the marginalization of women at all levels of society? And by which subtle psychological mechanisms are social inequalities between groups maintained?
