This goal is important as it is the only way those scientists will be able to stay up to date in their field, maintain meaningful careers, and be in a position to help rebuild their countries once conditions allow. And until then, these professionals can be valuable assets for any country in which they arrive.
Science in Exile Initiative
Wars, persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations and climate change displace untold numbers of people from their homes and countries, and among them are scientists, doctors, engineers, and others with technical training. This initiative aims to create a network of like-minded organizations that will work together to develop a global platform and roll out a coordinated advocacy campaign, in order to foster a cohesive response for the support and integration of refugee, displaced and at-risk scientists.
