DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

The Scuola Normale Superiore joins the Italian section of Scholars at Risk. Scholars at Risk protects scholars suffering grave threats to their lives, liberty and well-being by arranging temporary research and teaching positions at institutions in our network as well as by providing advisory and referral services.
SAR Italy is a partnership between Italian higher education institutions and research centres and Scholars At Risk.

Scholars at Risk provides advisory services for scholars and hosts, campaigns for scholars who are imprisoned or silenced in their home countries, monitoring of attacks on higher education communities worldwide, and leadership in deploying new tools and strategies for promoting academic freedom and improving respect for university values everywhere.

RESULTS AND IMPACT

Coming together in SAR Italy, the adhering institutions commit to concretely contributing to the
promotion and protection of academic freedom, alongside over 500 other higher education
institutions in 40 countries in the world.
