Prof. Liviu Matei, Provost der Central European University in Budapest (CEU)
Opening event International Week 2017
Academic freedom is one of the founding principles of Freie Universität Berlin. Nowadays, higher education policies very often decide upon the direction of the work of universities rather than academics, students or administrators. Universities are facing increasing political pressure worldwide. Do higher education policy makers have an obligation to care for truth and freedom?
We will discuss the impact of higher education policy on the traditional mission of universities, the pursuit of truth and freedom.
