Panel Discussion: Academic Freedom in Europe. Threats and Challenges
Invitation to Keynote, Discussion and Reception
April 03, 18:00, Berlin (HU Main Building, Senate Hall)

With populist movements and parties gaining influence in many European countries, research environments, here too, are becoming more hostile and pressure on scholars increases.
