This conference comes in the context of the Government’s plans to legislate for freedom of speech in higher education, with the Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill currently progressing through Parliament.
It will be an opportunity for key stakeholders and policymakers to examine the likely impact of the proposed new regulations and statutory duties on HE providers and student unions.
Delegates will be able to consider at the priorities for managing risk and liability, how to avoid undue bureaucracy, and the ramifications for the free expression of ideas on campuses.
They will also be able to assess the wider implications for the employability of graduates, protections for vulnerable groups, the rigour of academic research, and the autonomy of the sector and individual providers.
We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from Professor Michał Zasada, Vice-President, Conference of Rectors of Academic Schools in Poland (KRASP); and Rector, Warsaw University of Life Sciences; Dr Joe Lewis, Further and Higher Education Policy Specialist, House of Commons Library; and Hon Robert French, Chancellor, University of Western Australia.
The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DCMS; the DfE; the GLD; the Home Office; and the NAO.
