Global Purge: Understanding and Responding to Transnational Repression

Grant Year: 2019

Nate Schenkkan will lead an effort to assess the scope and scale of the ability of authoritarian regimes to threaten or act against dissidents or citizens who live abroad. He will build a publicly accessible database of instances of transnational repression and analyze modalities and trends of such repression worldwide. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
