Scholars at Risk: Human Rights and Academic Freedom
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ruth Rushworth.
A seminar bringing together a broad range of speakers to explore the issues surrounding human rights and academic freedom from a variety of perspectives.
In the midst of a tumultuous time for our own university system, CGHR , CRASSH and CARA host a seminar that seeks to remind us of the greater challenges faced by those living elsewhere. Whilst funding cuts in the UK may wreak havoc on our work, elsewhere colleagues at the sharp end of violations of academic freedom suffer persecution, intimidation, mental abuse and even physical abuse and death. Curbs on academic freedom affect all scholars, and this seminar hopes to build an awareness of the difficulties faced by academics around the world, the effect this has on the pursuit of knowledge, and of the positive steps the international academic community can take to support colleagues in need.
