The multi-faceted challenges to free speech in higher education: frustrating the rights of political participation on campus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Discusses the ways in which free speech is challenged in higher education institutions (HEIs), and the implications for student political participation. Considers challenges originating from the Government and from within the university system itself, how HEIs interpret and apply the right to political participation under legislation including the ECHR, and whether the restricted scope of free speech may have unforeseen and harmful consequences.
