Conference highlights academics’ post-conflict role
Malcolm Grant, president of the Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA), said grants of less than £10,000 (US$13,300) “can achieve an extraordinary amount of research in this environment”.
He was speaking at the start of a five-day online symposium that reviewed work done since CARA launched its Syria Programme in 2016, to support academics affected by the Syrian crisis. The symposium, “Voices from the Syrian Academic Community”, was organised with the support of the British Academy and the Royal Society. It ran from 6-10 December.
