Statement of support for victims in Brussels
Leiden University mourns the victims of the terrorist attacks in Brussels. These attacks are an assault on our democratic society. We will continue to defend our European values of freedom and tolerance against all attempts to undermine them.
The atrocities in Brussels are not isolated events. Our thoughts are with all innocent victims of acts of terror, wherever in the world they take place. We stand firm for freedom of spirit, thought and speech.
On behalf of the academic community of Leiden University,
Rector Magnificus and President of the Executive Board
