Friends of Scholars at Risk

Nobel Laureate Dr. Shirin Ebadi“Whenever fanatics and power join forces, scholars and intellectuals are at risk.  The solution is, first, to share power with the people.  Second, to raise public awareness and create a spirit of tolerance to enable scholars, intellectuals, progressive thinkers and innovators to go about their work without fear.”
—Shirin Ebadi, Iranian Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
   At the launch of launch of a new Scholars at Risk Ireland Section, Sept. ‘09
