Alexander Sodiqov back in Toronto
Alexander Sodiqov, the PhD student from the University of Toronto who was arrested and detained under suspicion of "espionage" in Tajikistan, was permitted to return to Toronto to continue his PhD studies. He and his family have arrived. While Alex remains under investigation and is unable to safely return to Tajikistan, authorities released him in part due to the attention and support he received internationally. The support of fellow scholars, especially political scientists across Canada and beyond, was instrumental. Thank you.
