The University of Edinburgh branch of Academics for Academic Freedom has been created to advocate for academic freedom at our university.
We invite interested members of the academic community – staff and students – to join us. You’re welcome irrespective of your disciplinary background, role in the University, or political views.. We ask only that you are committed to defending and advocating for academic freedom as defined in the Academics for Academic Freedom statement of principles:
‘We, the undersigned, believe the following two principles to be the foundation of academic freedom:
(1) that academics, both inside and outside the classroom, have unrestricted liberty to question and test received wisdom and to put forward controversial and unpopular opinions, whether or not these are deemed offensive, and
(2) that academic institutions have no right to curb the exercise of this freedom by members of their staff, or to use it as grounds for disciplinary action or dismissal.’
To join us, email Edinburgh.firstname.lastname@example.org
