Vasiliki Kosta speaks at Magna Charta Universitatum Observatory

Vasiliki Kosta spoke at the Magna Charta Universitatum Observatory webinar on ‘The roots of academic freedom – underlying values and human rights perspectives’ on 16 February 2023.

The webinar explored the nature of academic freedom as a human right, and sought to answer the question what the benefits of recognising it as an enforceable human right would be. Dr Kosta spoke on ‘Academic freedom in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights’. The webinar was chaired by Professor Klaus Beiter (Professor of Law, North-West University, Faculty of Law, Potchefstroom, South Africa) who also gave a talk entitled 'Yearning to belong: Finding a home for the right to academic freedom in the International Bill of Human Rights'. Professor Helle Porsdam (Professor of History and Cultural Rights, University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Law, Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies of Law) spoke on ‘Academic freedom, scientific freedom, and the human right to science’.
