The Monash Scholars at Risk Speaker Series is a landmark interdisciplinary program to promote academic freedom and to raise awareness on behalf of scholars who are unjustly threatened or persecuted for their work. The series provides international scholars who have suffered threats to their security, liberty and well-being the opportunity to visit the university to speak about their work. Monash joined Scholars at Risk in 2018 and is one of eighteen founding members in Australia.
