Academy in Exile


Academy in Exile offers scholars who are threatened in their home countries because of their academic or civic engagement for human rights, peace and democracy the opportunity to resume their research abroad. At AiE, scholars can rebuild professional networks and continue working in an international framework.

AiE provides a long-term, sustainable forum for reflecting on the pressing challenges to intellectual life, critical thinking, reason, social justice and diversity that are facing us today. Scholars at risk comprise half of the AiE evaluation committee and help set AiE’s scholarly agenda and long-term goals.¬†AiE is committed to the internationalization of higher education and offers a forum to discuss the parameters of academic freedom.
