IIE Scholar Rescue Fund Report: The Rescue of Science and Learning - (Page 10)

Ten Scholars Representing the Remarkable Lives and Achievements of Scholar Rescue Fund Scholars in the Last Ten Years Dr. Shemeem Burney Abbas applied to the Scholar Rescue Fund after Islamic clerics at her university in Pakistan brought charges against her that included blasphemy, an offense punishable by death. Now an associate professor at SUNY Purchase, she is an award-winning author who teaches across disciplinary boundaries, including political science, women's studies, literature, and creative writing, with a research focus on women's rituals in Islamic societies. Dr. Paul Ndebele is a Zimbabwean scholar of psychology with a research focus on bioethics who is currently at the Henry Jackson Foundation in Bethesda, Maryland. Unable to work effectively amid the deteriorating political and economic environment in Zimbabwe, Dr. Ndebele received fellowship support to participate in a bioethics program at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Dr. Maimul Ahsan Khan is a law professor in Bangladesh with expertise in human rights and Islamic legal issues who refused to remain silent when he observed political interference in his country’s higher education sector. He was one of the Scholar Rescue Fund’s first fellows and spent two years on fellowship at the University of California, Davis. Professor Mehrangiz Kar is a human rights lawyer and an internationally recognized writer from Iran who advocates for the defense of women’s and human rights throughout the Islamic world. Her work led to her arrest and imprisonment in Iran and ultimately to her exile from her home country. Now a visiting professor at Brown University, she spent her fellowship at Harvard University. Professor Daniel Coronell, a professor and renowned journalist from Colombia, received death threats for his reports linking Colombian drug traffickers, local self-defense forces, and government officials. His fellowship allowed him to pursue research on the origins of political violence in Colombia at the University of California, Berkeley. Now Senior Vice President and Executive News Director at Univision, he continues to report and research in the United States. 10 http://www.scholarrescuefund.org
