Jeremiah Igunnubole, ADF UK's Legal Counsel, spoke to GB News about the “culture of fear” around freedom of speech on university campuses.
University, of all places, is where students should be free to discuss and explore ideas about ethics, politics, religion and more. But according to our polling, a quarter of students self-censor in case their political, ethical, religious or other values clash with those promoted by their institutions.
This year, we’ve stood alongside over 35,000 of you in asking the government to protect free speech on campus for Father David, for Julia, and for everybody else with a view to express. And now, the Higher Education (Free Speech) Bill is already working its way through parliament. We’re working to make sure that the protections are as strong as possible, in order to keep campus conversations open for everyone.
