The AKG is represented on appointment and habilitation committees in an advisory function.

Following constitution, the gender composition of the committee is to be immediately reported to the AKG for verification of the 50% female quota.


The AKG is to be invited to all committee meetings in a timely manner.

All written documents, particularly protocols, applications, expert reports, etc., are to be sent to the office of the AKG.

In appointment procedures, the text of the job advertisement must be immediately submitted to the AKG for its inspection.

If the AKG has any reason to believe that a decision made by the appointments or habilitation committee constitutes discrimination, it shall be entitled to appeal to the arbitration committee within a period of three weeks.  

From the time when a complaint is filed with the arbitration committee, the university body is prohibited from executing the decision.
