Join us for the Scholars at Risk Network 2016 World Congress.
The SAR Network 2016 Global Congress will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Scholars at Risk (SAR) Network and the collective efforts of network members and partners protecting scholars and promoting academic freedom worldwide. Over the years, the network has grown from fewer than two dozen institutions to over 400 in 39 countries.
At the Congress, more than 200 university, government and nonprofit leaders, faculty, staff, students and advocates from 25 countries will come together to discuss seminal issues facing higher education today. Congress participants will discuss how to do more to protect universities and scholars in these challenging times, and to strengthen the capacity of the university sector to contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
The 2016 Congress will provide global SAR Network members—and prospective new members and partners—a special opportunity to engage with Canadian and other North American SAR members, as well as to enjoy all the cultural, historical and natural features that Montreal offers.

Where: Chancellor Day Hall (McGill Faculty of Law), 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA
