Openness challenged: the university at risk? 29.09.2022
General project description

Openness challenged: the university at risk? - Institutions for Open Societies 

Openness is a necessary condition for universities to compete and collaborate internationally, to contribute to an open society, to global challenges, and the public good. However, openness cannot any longer be taken for granted in the changing global context. Rising geo-political tensions, security concerns, illiberal trends, internal tensions in the EU, jeopardize institutional autonomy, academic freedom and potentially weaken the university’s ability to play its role as a core institution of the open society.  Read more: Openness challenged the university at risk.pdf
