Come join our advocacy and campaigning

We are strengthening our documentation, advocacy, and campaigning efforts to protect student activists and human rights defenders.

SAIH is a solidarity and development organization that has worked for over 60 years with partners around the world to promote education and academic freedom as a human right.

Through varied networks globally, program partners in seven countries, as well as local chapters and over 50 member organizations throughout Norway, we fight for everyone to have access to inclusive, quality higher education in a world with fair distribution and democracy without human rights violations.

Come join our fight to protect students and scholars! At a time of growing authoritarianism and declining democracies globally, we are strengthening our documentation, advocacy, and campaigning efforts to protect student activists and human rights defenders.
