States Have a Responsibility to Protect Higher Education from Attack
New York, 4 December — States must protect universities as spaces where professors and students are safe to teach, learn, and research free from threats to their physical and psychological wellbeing, the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA) said in a new report released today.
“Schools must be safe places of learning and development for all children. They should be zones of peace. Those who attack schools and hospitals should know that they will be held accountable.”
