What is the international community?

Sensoa – developer of the Flag System – asked Rutgers to support European organisations with the implementation of the Flag System.

Rutgers is creating an international community to offer this support. Our main objective is to enhance healthy sexual development of children and young people in Europe and to prevent sexual coercion.

Why the international community?

The Sensoa Flag System shows to be a necessary tool, considering that sexual coercion is a major problem. Globally as many as 20% of girls and 8% of boys are confronted with some form of sexual coercion. These numbers vary per country.

Professionals across Europe are dealing with the same difficulties identifying acceptable and unacceptable sexual behaviour and finding the appropriate response in an ever-changing (online) society. The Flag System answers  this specific issue in the Netherlands and Belgium. And even though it might need some adjustments to fit other settings and countries, the huge demand, and the results of our need assessment, make us believe there’s a place for this tool in other countries as well. Internationally, organisations are also dealing with the same difficulties.

Partners

Rutgers and Sensoa are working as partners to implement The Flag System in Europe. Together with other European partners we work towards a world in which people are free to make sexual and reproductive choices, respecting the rights of others in supportive societies.
