Join a group of academics for a brown bag (BYO) lunch to hear a short presentation followed by discussion.
It is confidently assumed that academic freedom offers broad protection, but can it be counted on? If it has substance, what is it? How is it guaranteed by international standards, and are these reflected in Australian domestic law? Whose interests are protected and how? These are some of the issues which Dr Taylor will address in a discussion of the dimensions of academic freedom as developed under the twin UN Covenants (the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights) and the European Convention, with corresponding analysis of protection available domestically.
Should people register and then be unable to attend, they are kindly asked to cancel their booking so that others can attend.
