Arranged and supervised by local faculty in partnership with SAR, each seminar takes on the case of one or more scholars facing unjust restrictions, prosecution, or imprisonment. Over the course of the seminar, students gain a deeper understanding of both the value of the academic freedom they enjoy and the risks scholars and students around the world face in the pursuit of knowledge. to develop hands-on research, advocacy, and leadership skills while investigating attacks on higher education communities or alleged cases of unjust restriction, prosecution, or imprisonment of scholars or students.
