The concept of academic freedom is closely intertwined with the emergence of what we consider the “modern university”. So is academic freedom an invention of the West? This session will focus on how the invaluable good of academic freedom has historically evolved in Europe, the Middle East and India and how universities may assert their autonomy even under difficult political conditions.
