AAA Applauds the release of Fariba Adelkhah

The American Anthropological Association enthusiastically welcomes the release of Fariba Adelkhah, the French-Iranian anthropologist and academic at Sciences Po, after spending more than three years in prison in Teheran. Supporters of Dr. Adelkhah, including the AAA, have always vehemently denied the charges she has faced, saying that she had been unjustly imprisoned. We thank everyone who made this release possible but also acknowledge, with others still wrongfully imprisoned, there is still more work to be done.
