The overarching objectives of the initiative are:
- To contribute towards new knowledge on sexual harassment at work in the Nordic countries, with a focus on preventive measures and intervention methods.
- To contribute towards a good knowledge base for policy development and to cross-sectoral Nordic collaboration within the Nordic Council of Ministers.
- For the research to be of high academic quality, practice-based and well communicated.
- To be relevant to the collaborative sectors involved, for affected industries and for the working life actors
A cross-sectoral reference group for the initiative, appointed by the Nordic Council of Ministers, participated in the construction of the calls and is still involved in various ways.
