As part of  New University in Exile Consortium, Endangered Scholars Worldwide is an initiative founded by Dr. Arien Mack in 2007 on the conviction that academic freedom and freedom of inquiry are basic human rights. We are dedicated to raising public awareness and support for intellectuals, academics, researchers, and students who have been threatened, silenced, or imprisoned simply for doing their scholarly work or speaking out against the injustices around them.
