A.A.U.P. 'Deeply Troubled' by Denial of Professor's Entry to Abu Dhabi

The American Association of University Professors has issued a statement saying that it is "deeply troubled" by a recent incident in which New York University Professor Andrew Ross was denied entry to the United Arab Emirates.
Saying that Ross's experience "raises considerable doubt" about N.Y.U.'s claims of academic freedom protections at its campus in Abu Dhabi, the A.A.U.P. is urging the N.Y.U. administration "to make every effort to get the ban on Professor Ross lifted and, should such efforts fail, to work with its faculty to reconsider its role in the emirate.”
