Science in Exile podcast launched

Policy for Science
Discover how science is being preserved across borders, told trough the stories of refugee and displaced scientists

The International Science Council (ISC) launched a series of six podcasts on the theme ‘Science in Exile’. The podcasts feature interviews with refugee and displaced scientists who share their science, their stories of displacement and their hopes for the future.

The series has been developed as a contribution to the Science in Exile initiative, a collaboration between The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (UNESCO-TWAS), the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) and ISC, and will feature members of the project’s steering committee as well as other scholars involved in the initiative.

The aim is to give a platform to displaced scientists to share their first-hand experiences, and to raise awareness of the issues faced by refugee, at-risk and displaced scholars.

You can hear the series first by following ISC Presents on your podcast platform of choice, by visiting or by clicking on the player below.
