Description

Academic freedom is at risk. From the impact of the cuts in the UK to the threats faced by scholars in Turkey, Iraq, Belarus and Thailand, Index reports on the pressures. As creationists in the US use legal means to undermine the teaching of evolution in the classroom and the push for open access divides the academic community, leading writers and commentators analyse the space for freedom - with Maureen Freely, Thomas Docherty, Michael Foley, Heather L Weaver, May Witwit, Sinfah Tunsawaruth, Bart Knoles and more. Plus - as the Leveson Inquiry prepares to report on the culture and ethics of the press, Alan Rusbridger, Guido Fawkes, Trevor Kavanagh, Mark Lewis and Martin Moore reveal their hopes and expectations. Index on Censorship is an award-winning magazine, devoted to protecting and promoting free expression. International in outlook, outspoken in comment, Index on Censorship reports on free expression violations around the world, publishes banned writing and shines a light on vital free expression issues through original, challenging and intelligent commentary and analysis, publishing some of the world's finest writers.
