Rally for Academic Freedom

We here at The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies believe, above all else, in the principle of academic freedom. This pillar of academia is currently under threat in Central and Eastern Europe and we wish to stand in solidarity with our colleagues and pledge our support to their Universities. An attack on academic freedom anywhere is an attack on it everywhere.
