Should Australian Universities Allow Free Speech?
Are Australian universities experiencing a free speech crisis? Or are speech regulations put in place to protect the students? A new report from the Institute of Public Affairs has ranked australian universities in terms of openness to free speech, with Sydney University ranking high as the most regulated. But is this actually a problem?
To unpack the report we were joined on the Wednesday Daily by the author of the Campus Audit for 2018, Matthew Lesh, a Research Fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs.
