2. Willcox, Sarah. "Helping Scholars in Danger. The Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 57th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Hilton Riverside Hotel, New Orleans, LA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-17 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In this presentation, the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) will offer a general overview of its activities assisting scholars facing threats or danger in their home countries by providing them with temporary academic positions and a safe environment in which to live and work.

The purpose of the presentation is twofold: raising awareness of the challenges faced by scholars in nations under conflict and giving examples of the ongoing efforts these scholars have undertaken around the world to revitalize civil society and rebuild what has been singularly destroyed.

Drawing on data collected through decades of being in the field, this presentation will illustrate the Fund’s challenges and achievements. Examples may be anecdotal, but they are intended to bring a face to the conflict, to reflect on the soft power of the SRF fellowship recipients and their influence in pre- and post-conflict settings.

SRF will bring to the panel the perspective of those practitioners who struggle to protect academic freedom in challenging contexts. The work of SRF is not revolutionary or political. It is practical and reactionary. It is a resource of last resort for scholars who have attempted to ride a wave of repression, persecution and violence but see ultimately no other way to protect themselves and advance their academic ideals.

Abstract: Historically, the lawyer, the diplomat, the teacher, and the political scientist were one and the same. Aristotle, Cicero, Aquinas, Machiavelli, Gentili, Grotius, Locke, Montesquieu and even Wilson were all scholar-statesmen largely responsible for creating, interpreting, and applying existing laws on behalf of their states. The views of these scholars on what international law was and what position states should take on international law were extremely influential. These scholar-statesmen were largely responsible for the development of modern international law, and it was their efforts which initiated such concepts as state sovereignty, the laws of war and diplomacy, the recognition of a universal standard of human rights, and freedom of international economic enterprise. Today, however, the role of the scholar in the development and recognition of international law has become more varied. In some countries, such as the United States, the scholar is not considered a source of law. In other countries, such as France, however, the scholar has retained a significantly more active role as a source of law, shaping the approach the country takes to international law and influencing the state’s recognition and compliance with international legal principles. In still other countries, for example Egypt, the role of the scholar has been active in shaping attitudes towards international law, but in a much more conservative vein as these scholars also serve to protect the traditional religious approach to law. In this paper I consider the scholar as a source of law, and examine whether those states which retain this historical practice have a different approach to international law than those states in which scholars are not a source of law. Stemming from a broader project which examines the role of a state’s legal tradition in determining how states arrive at different interpretations of recognized principles of international law, this paper focuses on one component of legal tradition – the sources of law – and the specific role that scholars have in shaping a state’s approach to international law. An initial examination of both sources of law within 133 states and state ratification of international treaties indicates that in those states where scholars are a source of law, the state is more likely to support international law through treaty ratification.
