SYMPOSIUM: Shrinking academic freedom in Europe
On November 9th, the World Science Day, the Swedish National Commission for UNESCO and the Young Academy of Sweden are co-organizing a symposium on the theme of Shrinking Academic Freedom in Europe.
The human right to participate in and benefit from science is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. The 2017 UNESCO Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers further states that academic freedom lies at the very heart of the scientific process, and provides a strong guarantee of the accuracy and objectivity of scientific results.

Today when academic freedom is challenged in some countries and disciplines, it is urgent to highlight and discuss how researchers, universities, academies and governments may support fellow researchers and safeguard academic freedom globally.

The symposium is held at Regeringskansliet in Stockholm, November 9th, from 13-15. Please find more details about the event, as well as information on how to register at the linked website.
