« Migration » of scholars at risk, what perspectives of cooperation for the philanthropic sector?

Workshop - 2019 EFC conference

The Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and the Pause Program organize a discussion on « Migration » of scholars at risk, what perspectives of cooperation for the philanthropic sector

Many programs have been set up to provide temporary protection for scholars and students fleeing conflict zones, natural disasters or persecution. However, the issue of their integration into the academic or corporate worlds remains open. 

Building on testimonials of threatened scholars and of people working in the field the debate will focus on the impact of such initiatives and the role the philanthropic sector could play in implementing longer-term solutions.
