The ‘inclusion and/or excellence’ debate is rumbling on in both academic and political circles when it comes to supporting academics at risk. This session will combine a conceptual discussion on the need for academic solidarity, an overview of national-level programmes, a comparison of support programmes for students, and tips on how to ensure political will and funding support for at-risk scholars.
