Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


An article in Science & Diplomacy notes IIE’s role in the international higher education response in post-war Iraq. "The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF), launched in 2002, is a permanent program to respond to individualized, acute, and large-scale emergencies. The program builds on IIE’s efforts to protect academic freedom since its founding in 1919. IIE has participated in rebuilding higher education in countries post-conflict and in transitional phases. The experience of IIE-SRF in Iraq following the 2003 war offers lessons for ensuring that the provision of immediate refuge also supports scientists in their work."
