Scholars at Risk: Round Table
The University of Geneva is pleased to invite you to the round table for the launch of the report "Free to Think" analyzing attacks on communities of higher education in the world to be held at its premises at Uni Mail at room M1193 on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 15:30 to 17:00.
The report is presented by Scholars at Risk, an international defender of higher education rights, and builds on the work of Scholars at Risk’s Academic Freedom Monitoring Project (monitoring.academicfreedom.info). The report analyzes more than 240 incidents involving attacks on scholars, students and other members of higher education communities in 65 countries between January 2011 and May 2015, including incidents involving killings, violence and disappearances; false imprisonment and wrongful prosecution; loss of position and expulsion from study; restrictions on travel; and other attacks that significantly impair higher education.
