UNSFaculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP) Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta responded toward sexual violence issues in the campus seriously. As the initial stage of prevention, FISIP UNS conducted a discussion to match the views regarding sexual violence prevention and handling on the campus.

The discussion was held in Building 1 Hall FISIP UNS, Thursday (27/1/2022), and was attended by UNS Taskforce for Sexual Violence Prevention and all related parties. The Dean of FISIP UNS, Prof. Dr. Ismi Dwi Astuti Nurhaeni, M.Si., stated that FISIP wants to learn further on the steps to prevent and manage sexual violence on the campus, considering they have little to no experience in handling such phenomenon.

“This forum was held because the university has little experience to specifically handle complaints regarding sexual violence. Therefore, today I invited by fellows who currently take care of sexual violence prevention and management,” Prof. Ismi stated.

FISIP UNS effort is a follow-up for Permendikbudristek No. 30 of 2021 regarding Prevention and Management of Sexual Violence in Higher Education (Permendikbudristek PPKS) that provides a legal basis for handling sexual violence cases in higher education institutions, which previously had no specific legal basis. The regulation was issued following the numbers of sexual violence that occurred in the institutions. According to the survey conducted by the Directorate General of Higher Education, Research, and Technology (Ditjen Diktiristek) 2020, 77% of faculty members revealed that sexual violence occurred on the campus, but only 66% reported the cases to the campus officials.

“Sexual violence is a tip of an iceberg, those who report are a few, but the real cases could be far greater,” Prof. Ismi added.

The discussion invited the Chief of Life Quality and Women’s Protection, Office of Women’s Empowerment, Child Protection and Population Control and Family Planning (DP3AP2KB) of Central Java Province, Dra. Sri Dewi Indrajati, MM. The three-hour discussion also invited the Chief of Women and Children Protection Unit (PPA) of Surakarta Police Office (Polresta), Ipda Dian Wulandari.
