The Council for the Defence of British Universities is pleased to publish its position paper on Academic Freedom brought together by three executive committee members: Dr Kelli Rudolph, Professor Susan Bruce and Professor John Holmwood. The paper articulates the nature and importance of academic freedom as a public good and highlights the challenges it currently faces. It sets out a series of suggestions for protecting academic freedom within universities and beyond, including a model ordinance that individual institutions might adopt to assert institutional autonomy in upholding this essential principle.
