News University Clear stand against abuse of power

The German universities of music recognise that there is an abuse of power at their universities and want to take active steps to combat it.

At its conference in Hamburg from 6 to 8 May, the German Rectors' Conference of Universities of Music unanimously adopted a position paper and recommendations for action on this key issue. The latter are intended to serve as an expandable toolbox for future prevention measures and to help university management to identify and change structures that encourage abusive behaviour.
