The Taliban deprives women of higher education.

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, women of all ages have been unable to continue their education. Afghan women pursuing their Ph.D and master’s degrees have had to stop their research. They cannot continue their studies and improve their lives in the current situation.

And they cannot simply leave the country.

What Afghan Scholars Say

After completing my Ph.D. in chemical engineering, I was struggling with the situation in Afghanistan. This forced me to search for a safe place for continuing my academic work. Receiving an invitation from the Tampere University was a great opportunity to pursue my postdoctoral research in Finland. I believe that a researcher or a scholar does not belong to any specific place or country. They work for the good of the world and they should be free to travel across the globe to enhance their skills and career development while benefiting their society.

Postdoctoral Researcher
Tampere University

Exactly at the time of the government change in Afghanistan, I was preparing for the final round of my doctoral dissertation defense. It was impossible to believe what happened and I was afraid of the vague future. I did not know if I, as a woman, would be able to pursue my job and do any research, or not. I had a world of hope and motivation when I started my doctorate courses. However, the world was upended for me and I was hopeless. Fortunately, I was offered a position as a post doctorate researcher at the Avignon University, which gave me the opportunity to continue my research and career in the IT field.
