Living with people that you just met is not always easy. Everyone comes with their views and opinions on how things should be. Sometimes people can even harass you just because of where you come from or your religion. There are many other ways someone you live with can harass you. AIESEC tries to avoid these situations by giving everyone a pre-departure session, which also covers these issues.

If, unfortunately, you do get harassed, you should talk to the AIESEC managers in your host and home country. They will make sure you will be heard, and they will support you at all times. Together with the Harassment Prevention Committee, they will investigate the case and try to solve the situation. If you have any proof that you have been harassed in any way, please keep it and show it to them. They will handle it with total discretion.
