World Science Day symposium Academic Freedom in Troubled Times

Theme day

The Varieties of Democracy Institute and The Young Academy of Sweden wish to invite you to the World Science Day symposium Academic Freedom in Troubled Times

The World Science Day for Peace and Development, celebrated every year on 10 November, was established by UNESCO in 2001 with the aim of highlighting the important role of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging and important contemporary issues relevant to science.

Academic freedom is shrinking as a part of the ongoing trend that includes the rise in populism and political oppression. Being a vital part of democracy, the ability of our universities to pursue research questions freely must be defended. Some countries and research topics are currently hotspots, receiving more pressure than others. At the World Science Day symposium, we scrutinize and discuss the ongoing challenges to academic freedom.
