SUHF, the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions, as well as the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, are deeply concerned by the current situation for students and staff at Iranian universities.
Full statement from SUHF:
“The student protest in Iran continues. The demonstrations against the regime started after Mahsa Jîna Amini was detained by the Iranian moral police and later died in custody the 16 September. International media report today that Iranian security forces have surrounded students at Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, shooting at them and firing tear gas towards them.
SUHF is strongly committed to democratic and human rights including the right to free expression and non-violent protests. Current violations of these rights for university students and staff in Iran are deeply concerning.”
