Science and Human Rights Conference AAAS

Science and Human Rights Conference AAAS

The GYA At-Risk Scholars Initiative will host a collaborative workshop at the AAAS Science and Human Rights Conference in Washington, DC, from 23 -25 October 2019. The conference marks the coalition’s tenth anniversary.

The workshop will discuss how to improve support for at-risk academic colleagues around the world. Co-founder of the initiative, Teresa Stoepler, will present the GYA At-Risk Scholar Initiative model as an example of one way to address an acute human rights issue. Two at-risk scholars currently taking part in the mentoring programme will speak from the perspective of at-risk academics. The workshop aims to elicit feedback on how to improve the programme, and to explore how different organizations can collaborate to support at-risk academics in research institutions and communities, as well as to learn from others’ experiences. Intended workshop attendees include at-risk scholars, university administrators, researchers, and practitioners who work with at-risk populations.
