International Academic Freedom Day

At its Annual Conference today Academics For Academic Freedom (AFAF) declared 20 May to be International Academic Freedom Day.

The 20 May is the birth date of John Stuart Mill (pictured) the author of On Liberty (1859) which is still essential reading for all lovers of freedom today.

We ask all relevant organisations and universities to support this initiative and to organise lectures, seminars and debates on that date every year.

Supporting organisations are:
