Strong Institutional Support

Christian Detellier, former University of Ottawa Provost and Vice-president Academic, said, in 2014: “uOttawa is joining the network of academic institutions partaking in this initiative because we consider academic freedom to be a right and protecting it remains of utmost importance. We believe this partnership will help foster advocacy for the cause.”

“This is a great opportunity for Carleton and the University of Ottawa to collaborate on helping a scholar who is facing academic and personal risks at home to spend a year in Canada to teach and conduct research in peace and security,” said Peter Ricketts, provost and vice-president (Academic).
