Our related campaign Best Free Speech Practice (www.bfsp.uk) has published an important “Know Your Rights” statement for academics, students and indeed universities. It has condensed these complex legal issues to one page, which can be used in various ways by the free speech campaigns out there, including for campaigning on campus, and is as far as we know unique.
See the statement here: https://bfsp.uk/kyr. A longer (two page) version, which is more technical and more aimed at those who have a current problem, can be found at www.bfsp.uk/universities-and-free-speech.
We are convinced that the various university free speech campaigns could be so much stronger if we work closely together, and a key project for this year is trying to help this happen. With this in mind, we have co-logo’d the KYR statement for our friends at the brilliant Academics for Academic Freedom to distribute widely among their extensive university networks and membership.
