Preventing Sexual Harassment at Work

Nordic Research Initiative 2021-2023


Sexual harassment at work is a challenge for the Nordic labour market and to the goal of creating an inclusive, gender equal and cohesive region. International and Nordic studies alike show that sexual harassment exists in all sectors of the labour market and that it has serious negative consequences. Therefore, the five Nordic gender equality ministers decided to allocate funding for new research on sexual harassment at work in the Nordic Region.The goal was predominantly to contribute towards new knowledge, with a focus on preventive measures and intervention methods. The research funding initiative was carried out 2021-2023 in collaboration between the Nordic sectors for gender equality, culture and working life and the Nordic Committee for Children and Young People.
