Diversity-Dimensions

From the categories subject to the legal protection against discrimination regulated by the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG), the core set of diversity dimensions that shape our current understanding of human diversity is derived:

  • national and ethnic origin
  • gender (including identification with none of the binary genders, transgender and intersex) and sexual identity
  • philosophy and religion, as well as not belonging to a religious community or philosophy
  • disability and chronic diseases
  • age

The University of Regensburg also estimates the aspects that can equally stand in the way of equal participation in the university education and research system:

  • social background
  • international educational background
  • parenthood, family situation and life plan

In analogy to the AGG, which also protects multiple discrimination through § 4, the UR takes into account the connection between the respective social-structural conditions and individual (multiple) disadvantages (intersection-sensitive approach).


On this page we have compiled events & measures of the UR as well as external links to the individual diversity dimensions.
