Urgent Appeal for Ukraine

Scholars at Risk stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with people around the world, including in Russia, in condemning the ongoing acts of aggression against the Ukrainian people and territory by the agents and armed forces of the Russian Federation.

At Scholars at Risk, our mission is to protect threatened scholars and to promote academic freedom. We do this because scholars and academic freedom are essential for quality research, teaching, and discourse, but also because they are essential in creating democratically-legitimate, rights-respecting societies. The ongoing aggression against Ukraine and its population is a complete rejection of these core values. As this ongoing invasion tears apart cities and families, we are working tirelessly with our network to protect scholars, students, and institutions. Although we may not know the full scale of this crisis for weeks, or even months, we stand ready to assist those in need.
