Since 16 June 2014 Alexander Sodiqov, a young scholar and PhD student at the University of Toronto, has been in the custody of the security services in Tajikistan. The detention incommunicado of a young scholar has generated an international outcry—from students, from scholars, from universities,
from human rights groups, and from foreign governments. In this global discussion, held in at least nine settings, scholars consider  not only the latest information about Sodiqov’s detention but also
the broader implications for research scholars around the globe.
