Time: 1 pm EST
Where: Live Stream
Cost: FREE

This month’s UCCHRE Webinar will feature Scholars at Risk (SAR) an international network of institutions and individuals whose mission it is to protect scholars and promote academic freedom.

How can universities develop their engagement with human rights and human rights education? During this webinar, you can learn about how to get involved with SAR’s work, its overlap with human rights education, and how to further this work on campus. Shreya Balhara and Alex Bell will speak about SAR’s new initiative, Practitioners at Risk, to support threatened human rights defenders on university campuses and SAR’s advocacy work with a focus on student advocacy seminars. These seminars provide university and college students with the opportunity to develop human rights research and advocacy skills through direct engagement on behalf of threatened members of the global higher education community.
