The launch of the Scholars at Risk Greece section took place on October 1, 2021, hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. SAR Greece is a partnership between Greek higher education institutions and research centers and Scholars at Risk, an international network of higher education institutions dedicated to promoting academic freedom and protecting the rights of scholars across the world. In constituting SAR Greece, the governance structures of member institutions, as well as researchers, educators, students, and administrative personnel send a strong message of solidarity to scholars and institutions that experience situations whereby their academic freedom is at stake, and their research, educational and ‘third mission’ activities are constrained.
The launch was held in-person at the University of Thessaloniki, with online participation an option for those with difficulty traveling to the event. All sessions were held in Greek, except for one session with international partners. Programme available here: SAR Greece Launch Programme.
