Academic freedom is under pressure around the globe. Scholars are threatened for their ideas and research and there is an urgent need for support. The Foundation for Refugee Students UAF coordinates the SAR network in the Netherlands and Belgium and helps threatened scholars to continue their work in a safe environment.
In order to create a wider awareness of the position of threatened scholars, the UAF has developed a film presentation on the subject of academic freedom. This presentation shows the film First Class (director: Miles Roston) about the life of threatened scholar Felix Kaputu.
