A lifeline to academics at risk

"Cara has been working since 1933 to help academics and scientists fleeing from discrimination, persecution, suffering and violence.  Some of those who turn to Cara have been attacked for defending academic freedom and human rights, for speaking out against government abuses, or opposing extremism.  Others, caught up in conflict, have seen their universities under fire and their colleagues kidnapped, tortured or assassinated.  And others have faced assaults or even murder threats because of their ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.  Cara helps them to find refuge at universities in the UK and elsewhere, where they can maintain and develop the skills they will need when, as the great majority of them want, they can go home safely to build better, more stable societies."
