WEA letter of support for scientists in Mexico

Summary:
Prosecutors in Mexico seeking arrest warrants for more than 30 scientists “The World Economic Association –with its 15,000 members-is committed to the development, promotion and diffusion of economic research and knowledge; advocating plurality of thought, method and philosophy. We are convinced that these activities can only be carried out in a context of freedom, exempt of intimidation and harassment. In this spirit we voice our apprehension for  the 31 Mexican scientists and scientific administrators accused by the Mexican government of grave financial crimes. In this regard, we fully subscribe the concerns raised by the International Secretaries of the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine in a public letter to the President of Mexico dated October 6, 2021″
