Scholars at Risk (SAR) is an international network of higher education institutions dedicated to protecting threatened scholars, preventing attacks on higher education communities and promoting academic freedom worldwide. The network protects scholars suffering grave threats to their lives, liberty and well-being by arranging positions of sanctuary at institutions in the network. The session will present the scope of initiatives developed by the SAR uOttawa Program from the perspective of three areas of activity: protection, advocacy and learning.
