Protect Academic Freedom

AAA has moved to strengthen its commitment to protecting academic freedom by establishing a Rapid Response Network and activating an affiliation with Scholars At Risk, an international non-profit organization that works to protect threatened scholars and promote academic freedom around the world.

The Rapid Response Network on Academic Freedom, a diverse group of anthropologists with scholarly expertise on academic freedom issues is chaired by anthropologist Marc Edelman, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. The Network serves as an advisory group to AAA's president, Executive Board, and membership to be called upon as needs and threats arise.

In addition to its affiliation with Scholars At Risk, AAA will maintain its active membership in the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Coalition for Science and Human Rights.
