Tom Simpson co-authors new report on academic freedom

Tom Simpson, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School, is among the authors of a new report published by Policy Exchange.  

The report, Academic freedom in the UK: Protecting viewpoint diversity, is co-authored by two other academics, Remi Adekoya and Eric Kaufmann, with a foreword by former Labour MP and Chief Executive of Index on Censorship Ruth Smeeth. Including a poll of 820 academics in UK universities, the authors argue that academic freedom needs greater protection, and make a number of policy recommendations.
