The University of Turin adheres to the Scholars at Risk Italy section.
The Scholars at Risk Italy section was launched at the University of Padova on February 19, 2019. SAR Italy is a partnership between Italian higher education institutions and research centres and SAR, an international network of higher education institutions aimed at fostering the promotion of academic freedom and protecting the fundamental rights of scholars across the world.
In constituting SAR Italy, the governance structures of adhering institutions, as well as researchers, educators, students and administrative personnel send a strong message of solidarity to scholars and institutions that experience situations whereby their academic freedom is at stake, and their research, educational and "third mission" activities are constrained.
Coming together in SAR Italy, the adhering institutions commit to concretely contributing to the promotion and protection of academic freedom, alongside over 500 other higher education institutions in 40 countries in the world.
SAR members in Italy: Istituto Universitario Europeo, Magna Charta Observatory, Scuola Normale Superiore, University of Bologna, University of Brescia, University of Cagliari, University of Macerata, University of Milano, University of Padova, University of Roma, University of Siena, Università Telematica Internazionale di Nettuno, University of Trento, University of Torino, University of Trieste, University of Verona.
