Recognizing that too often scholars may feel compelled to limit their research or expression for fear of negative consequences, Scholars at Risk is partnering with Al-Fanar Media on a new survey to understand the causes and extent of academic self-censorship in the Arab region. SAR ask for the following help:
- Professors, researchers, lecturers, and students in or from the Arab region are invited complete the survey, sharing their thoughts, personal experience, and knowledge about academic self-censorship to help inform concrete actions to combat its root causes. (Complete the survey here.)
- Individuals everywhere are invited to email the link to colleagues in their networks to encourage their participation in the survey.
- Researchers in other regions are invited to contact SAR at firstname.lastname@example.org about partnering in deploying the survey in their country or region.
