In a global context, academic liberties are increasingly threatened by governments that seek to control and subdue their Universities.

At the forefront of this battle is Michael Ignatieff’s Central European University. Facing an increasingly untenable situation in Victor Orban’s Hungary, Ignatieff took the bold move of relocating much of CEU’s operations to Vienna.

At Buckingham’s Festival of Higher Education, Michael Ignatieff gave his honest and frank reflections on worldwide academic freedom. In conversation with Sir Anthony Seldon, Dr. Ignatieff not only gives a gripping first-hand account from the frontline of academic freedom but also places CEU’s experience in context for all HE leaders.

If you love Higher Education, this is essential watching for you and your team.
