Event description

Description

While norms of what constitutes ‘academic citizenship’ are increasingly global, academic freedom is under acute threat due to censorship and persecution of academics by state and non-state actors in various locations around the world. This roundtable will focus on specific situations in Bangladesh, China, Turkey and Uganda, while considering what universities and academics outside these countries can/should do to respond, with a spotlight on initiatives at the University of Edinburgh.

This event will be live streamed, for information see the Citizens, Nations and Migration Network website.

China: Dr. Tim Pringle, SOAS, editor of the China Quarterly
