This amendment removes the express limitation that academic freedom covers only matters within an academic’s field of expertise.
“(c) to conduct research,
(d) to engage in intellectual inquiry and contribute to public debate,
(e) to criticise any institution,
(f) to be affiliated to any institution, and
(g) to be a member of a trade union body,”-(Matt Western.)
This amendment would widen the definition of academic freedom.
