SAR Speaker Tours are designed to raise awareness of attacks on scholars and academic freedom worldwide, through the organisation of events at network member institutions featuring formerly at risk scholars now outside of the country of danger. These events help scholars make new contacts and re-establish the personal and professional relationships that lead to future opportunities, while at the same time introducing local higher education communities to these inspiring, courageous individuals.
Scholars at Risk is an international network of higher education institutions dedicated to promoting academic freedom worldwide. Around the world today, scholars are attacked because of their words, their ideas and their place in society. Those seeking power and control work to limit access to information and new ideas by targeting scholars, restricting academic freedom and repressing research, publication, teaching and learning. The Scholars at Risk Network responds to these attacks.
