Academic freedom is becoming a regular fixture within the mainstream media, as only too frequently it is jeopardised, called into question and challenged. In the latest issue of Index on Censorship, the editorial follows and explores these very issues. To support the issue further, the editorial board have also pulled together a series of article lists to provide further context on various issues including threats to academic freedom, journalism and censorship, and more.

Universities, historically centres of rigorous discussion and debate, have traditionally championed the right of freedom of expression and speech, but amid fears of reprisal, many institutions are now becoming increasingly silent. Alarmed? We are too. Put your voice to this debate and let us know your thoughts!
