Academic Freedom can face political, cultural, institutional, and economic pressures, and these dynamics can vary from country to country, or even across regions or jurisdictions within a country. In particular, restrictions on academic freedom can be used to stifle political dissent through both censorship and self-censorship, and thus present both human rights and anti-democratic concerns. This discussion group will bring together law faculty from various countries for a comparative discussion of threats to academic freedom; the relationship between academic freedom and personal statements or political activism; the political, cultural, institutional, and economic implications of working in restrictive environments; and steps that might be considered to protect academic freedom.
