With a great concern and care have we received information of the Centre for Monitoring of Racist and Xenophobic Behaviours concerning comments addressed to dr hab. Killion Munyama, the employee of the Poznań University of Economics and Business and our colleague.
We would like to remind that Mr Killion Munyama is a habilitated doctor in economic sciences and an employee of the Department of Money and Banking at the Poznań University of Economics and Business. His research interests focus on the functioning of international financial institutions in the global economy and address also the issues of finance and banking in Poland, the European Union and countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. At present, dr hab. Killion Munyama is a Member of Parliament of the Republic of Poland (terms of office: 2011-2014, 2015-2019).
We wish to emphasise that the Poznań University of Economics and Business strives to ensure the openness of the academic community to diversity and multiculturalism as well as compliance with the principle of equal treatment, irrespective of colour, race, nationality, ethnic origin, sex and other human features. Tolerance and openness form a cornerstone of activity not only of universities but also any institutions worldwide - both in Poland and abroad. Respect for man, regardless of colour, religion, sex or convictions is a foundation on which we build a dialogue free from stereotypes, prejudices, discrimination as well as verbal and physical violence.
We strongly believe that the knowledge is developed not only by information resources and science but also by the awareness of an overriding need for building relations with other people, irrespective of their colour, race, nationality or sex.
