Speaker Series

Speaker series are public discussion with selected academics, scholars  and researchers facing the threats to their freedoms (expel from the country, lawsuit, violence, inequitable job termination, harassment,…).  Speaker Series is a wonderful opportunity for network institutions to bring to campus one or more diverse, interesting, courageous scholars, each with a powerful and unique story to share. Through these events, campus communities and the public learn about threats to academic freedom and attacks on scholars as well as the scholar’s own academic work and experiences.

Who is it for?

Speaker series is aimed at anyone who is interested in the human rights and freedoms, global education, global development, freedom of speech and academic freedoms. We assume, that the stories told by individuals, who experienced these threats in real life would be able to affect the public and open the discussion about these issues.
