Academics in Solidarity Network Conference: Regaining Lost Knowledge – Connecting Research at Home and in Exile
The conference was held at Freie Universität Berlin on 21-22 November 2019.
The network conference signified the launch of a new stage of Academics in Solidarity. By November 2019, more than 80 displaced and endangered scholars registered as mentees with AiS. The conference gave them the opportunity to present their research to a wider audience, bring them together with established scholars and mentors and expand their professional and academic networks. The conference further served as a platform for exchange among key stakeholders representing support programs for at-risk scholars, research funding organizations, expert communities and AiS partner institutions in Germany, Lebanon and Jordan.
