Registration for SAR's "Free to Think 2021" virtual symposium is open

10 November 2021

Scholars at Risk organise, on the 9th of December 2021, “Free to Think 2021” a virtual symposium marking the release of SAR’s Free to Think 2021 report tracing attacks on higher education communities around the world.

The report, based on data compiled by SAR’s Academic Freedom Monitoring Project, analyses attacks on higher education communities around the world, including violent attacks on universities, wrongful imprisonment and prosecutions of scholars, and attacks on student expression. The report also recommends steps that stakeholders can take to promote and protect academic freedom.

Featuring experts on Afghanistan, Belarus, Myanmar, and elsewhere, the event will conclude with a presentation of the 2021 Courage to Think Award, which recognizes individuals, groups or institutions that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to protecting scholars and promoting academic freedom. The event is free and open to the public, with pre-registration required. An optional virtual networking session will follow the event. For more detail and registration, visit the event’s page.
