Free Universities: Putting the Academic Freedom Index Into Action Through the UN Human Rights Systems
Academic freedom is a universal right and essential to quality education, teaching and research, but it remains poorly understood – and is under attack in many places, including new threats ushered in by the pandemic. This high-level webinar will present the 2020 Academic Freedom Index (AFi) a robust instrument that can inform research and drive human rights policy debates among government officials, parliamentarians, research funders, university administrators, academics, students, and advocates.

Ms. Irene Khan, UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of freedom of opinion and expression;
Ms. Koumbou Boly Barry, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to education;
Mr. Mikel Mancisidor, Member of the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR);
Ms. Janika Spannagel, Research Fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute
