Anti-discrimination and Anti-harassment in Thammasat: Policies and Mechanisms

In 2019 – 2020, Thammasat University (TU) took anti-discrimination and -harassment very seriously.

In 2019, TU cooperated with The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and associated agency like Thai Health Promotion Foundation, a private organization for gender diversity and health. The university launched the campaign “TU Say No To Sexual Harassment on Campus. We are ‘Generation Equality’ on November 25.

Board of committee supporting gender diversity and security was established. Board of Committee is comprised of Vice Rector for Students Affairs as a president, committee from TU administrator, professors from Faculty of Laws, professors from Faculty of Social Administration, professors from Faculty of Public Health, representative from TU’s student council, TU’s student union, and representatives from civil society organization for gender rights and representatives from UN, 15 in total.

In June 2020, TU announced a guideline for non-discriminatory treatment towards LGBTIQN students and how they dress. This guideline allows the students to behave and dress in accordance with their gender, even in the graduation ceremony. It also prohibits actions of harassment, discrimination, bullying or any form of harassments.
