Open Letter for More Gender Balance in SPS Faculty

A- A A+

Researchers of the Department for Political and Social Science (SPS) at the EUI criticize the gender imbalance at their department. In an open letter to the President of the EUI, the head of the SPS department and the members of the SPS facult, they write “Currently the SPS department has 1 female professor and 12 male professors. … Especially in light of the upcoming hiring of two new faculty members, we feel a need to voice our concern and our hope that the university and the department are committed to trying to correct this stark gender imbalance when looking for suitable candidates.”

GRaSe supports the researchers’ initiative. See the full text of the letter (sent today, 8 September 2014): OpenLetterGenderBalance_SPS_Faculty
