This panel discussion is the fifth in the series “Veritas, Iustitia, Libertas”, organized in the context of the 70th anniversary of Freie Universität Berlin.

“Global responsibility is often referred to as an integral part of a university’s internationalization policy. While this is obvious when it comes to specific challenges, such as the integration of refugee students and scholars through rescue policies, it also plays a role when scholars participate in the politically controversial debate on migration. In the aftermath of the arrival of more than a million refugees in Europe in 2015, universities set up numerous programs to welcome refugee students and at-risk scholars. However, questions remain. What are the challenges related to these policies? How have they affected academic life and diversity on campus? And how do the often extremely controversial political debates challenge knowledge production in the higher education sector?”
