In this episode of the Free Speech Union podcast, Chief Executive Jonathan Ayling sits down with Grant Guilford former Vice-Chancellor of Victoria University of Wellington.
Jonathan and Grant discuss the First Annual Survey on Academic Freedom conducted earlier this year which highlighted the lack of freedom many lecturers have in their own universities and Grant offers his own thoughts on where our universities are getting it right and areas of concern.
Also explored are the implications of allowing offense to rule over reason, some of the unexpected groups that put pressure on universities, and why it is so challenging to develop new knowledge if we can't ask provocative questions.
