Researchers at Risk
Ten European partner organisations have joined forces in an ambitious initiative to support researchers at risk.
SAR Europe works to increase understanding, protection for, and implementation of academic freedom Europe-wide.
In Europe, SAR’s network includes over 350 institutions in 26 European countries, including 13 SAR sections and 10 major partner networks.
Scholars at Risk Europe, hosted at Maynooth University, is the European office of the global Scholars at Risk network.
Scholars at Risk is an international network of higher education institutions and individuals working to protect threatened scholars and to promote academic freedom.
Launched at an event at the European Parliament in November 2018, the establishment of SAR Europe at Maynooth represents the culmination of nearly two decades of partnership between European higher education institutions and the global Scholars at Risk Network.
The European office supports and coordinates the activities of Scholars at Risk national sections and partner networks across Europe to strengthen our collective voice at the European level and contribute to informed policymaking for the greater protection of scholars and increased respect for academic freedom worldwide.
