The International Studies Association (ISA) strongly condemns the arrest and detention of Prof. Homa Hoodfar of Concordia University, Montreal, Canada by the Iranian government. The ISA joins other professional associations and human rights groups that have called for her unconditional release from prison.

As always, ISA strongly supports academic freedom and the right of scholars to conduct research in all countries, without threat of persecution.
