Stephen Wordsworth, Executive Director of the Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA), will describe its work over more than eighty years to provide urgently-needed support to academics who have been forced to flee from persecution, suffering or conflict around the world.  In recent years SOAS has played a vital role in supporting Cara’s mission, hosting many Cara Fellows. Continuing crises, particularly in the Middle East, mean that Cara still needs the help of universities, their staff and students.
