SAR Italy

The Scholars at Risk Italy section was launched at the University of Padova on February 19, 2019.

SAR Italy is a partnership between Italian higher education institutions and research centres and SAR,
an international network of higher education institutions aimed at fostering the promotion of
academic freedom and protecting the fundamental rights of scholars across the world.

In constituting SAR Italy, the governance structures of adhering 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.

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.
