Panel Discussion & Book Launch: Open Minds. Academic & Freedom of Speech

The book is a response to the alarms raised over basic freedoms in universities. It investigates recent controversies, delivering into history, core values and purposes of a university. Evans and Stone explain why universities have given high protection to certain freedoms, and how competing legal, ethical and practical claims can restrict freedom of expression. Open Minds is a crisp, timely and definitive look at the complex topic of freedom in Australian Universities.
