Cantabs for Persecuted Scholars

Petition calling University of Cambridge students and staff to commit publicly to supporting at-risk academics

This petition calls upon the University of Cambridge and its colleges to commit publicly to supporting at-risk academics granted admittance to the University of Cambridge in the form of financial, housing, and other support. Generous assistance in times of need embodies the spirit the University’s mission “to contribute to society through pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.” We believe that close cooperation with established charities is the best way of standing by these treasured values.

The CAMMIGRES Network

Launched in January 2014, by Co-Founders Professors Madeleine Arnot and Loraine Gelsthorpe, and Research Associate Dr Jessica Wheeler, the Cambridge Migration Research Network, funded by the Vice-Chancellor’s Endowment Fund, brings together a superb tract of migration research, spanning 23 University of Cambridge faculties, departments and centres, including researchers in anthropology, archaeology, history, politics, economics and land economy, geography, sociology, gender studies, psychology, health and education studies, management studies, linguistics, theology, criminology and law.

CAMMIGRES researchers' interests orient around the impacts of past and present migration in relation to human evolution and development, social, legal, and economic policy, governance, professional knowledge, institutional practice and social relations.
