The Dutch system for supporting refugee scholars has become ineffective and futile. In this post, Linda Johnson explains how and why this is the case and suggests what should be done about it.

In the past, scholars facing persecution were regularly  received by Dutch universities, which provided them with a safe space to continue conducting their research in times of adversity.
