Event description: 

Yana Gorokhovskaia and Grady Vaughan will address a new report that examines how transnational repression – a set of tactics used by governments to reach across borders to silence dissent – impacts the freedom of students and scholars. The report surveys existing responses to transnational repression on US campuses and incorporates interviews with affected students and scholars. It concludes with a set of practical recommendations for university and college administrators about how to recognize the threat posed by transnational repression, empower individuals to report incidents, and adopt practices that protect students, faculty, and scholars while strengthening academic freedom
