James King, Senior Research & Program Officer at IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund, shares in University World News about a recent trip to Turkey to research the current educational challenges faced by Syrian refugees—many of whom have had their university education and academic work interrupted indefinitely due to the conflict in their homeland. "We simply cannot afford to let these future leaders of Syria fall through the cracks" writes King, who recommends a greater commitment by the international community to support higher education during the crisis.
