Eric Kaufmann on Academic Freedom

We are excited to announce the release of our second CSPI report, “Academic Freedom in Crisis: Punishment, Political Discrimination, and Self-Censorship” by Eric Kaufmann.

The executive summary can be read here, with a link to the full report.

Eric has also written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal summarizing his findings.

Relying on eight different surveys of academics across the ideological spectrum in the US, Canada, and the UK, this report settles the debate once and for all about the political climate and state of free speech on campus. It is sure to motivate a great deal of discussion in the coming days and weeks.
