Home

Scholars at Risk is an international network of higher education institutions and individuals working to protect threatened scholars,  prevent attacks on higher education communities around the world and to promote academic freedom. The Ionian University joined the Network by decision of its Senat on 21st December 2020 operating in the framework of SAR Europe.

SAR Europe hosted at Maynooth University Irland is the European office of the global Scholars at Risk network. Launched at an event at the European Parliament in November 2018, the establishment of SAR Europe 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. Maynooth University coordinates also InSPIREurope, an ambitious 10-partner Europe-wide initiative to support researchers at risk. InSPIREurope is funded under the European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, and will forge a coordinated, cross-sectoral, Europe-wide alliance for researchers at risk.
