A deadly silencing of scholars

Brendan O’Malley 19 April 2009 University World News – GLOBAL: A deadly silencing of scholars.

…”Estimated 1,000 academics have been killed or kidnapped. Jarecki and Kaisth say the time has come for the international community to establish, as a priority, the protection of scholars via a United Nations convention.

“When a scholar is killed or silenced, a lifetime of teaching and learning that could provide thousands of hours of education for hundreds of students with all the benefits that provides for the community at large is lost,” they say.

“Other scholars are also silenced or censor themselves out of fear, students are reluctant to pursue their education, and the entire intellectual community upon which a country must base its growth and development suffers.”
