Trusted Person

The ESSLLI Summer Schools are famous for their pleasant atmosphere and for the social and friendly nature of its participants.

Of course, on an event of the scale like that of ESSLLI mishappenings in conduct cannot be logically excluded. We therefore have to emphasize that the ESSLLI organization does not tolerate behavior that any decent being can conceive to be inappropriate. ESSLLI expels all sorts of physical and mental harassment, all sorts of discrimination and unwarranted incrimination, and any other unlawful acts.

In order to secure against such mishappenings ESSLLI provides for a Trusted Person to whom one can report experienced and observed misbehavior of the kinds mentioned. The Trusted Person maintains strict confidentiality, meaning that (s)he does not communicate anything (s)he has heard in his/her position, if not explicitly licensed by the Trust Seeking Person. If so instructed, the Trusted Person is also appointed to act so as to prevent further misbehavior.

The Trusted Person at ESSLLI-2019 is Juris Borzovs .
