Public Talks

ESAF researchers will organize a series of open events on academic freedom (in Italian and/or in English) with the aim of strengthening the university relations with the local/national civil society networks and with secondary education institutions.

This trail of activities will contribute to raising public awareness about the impact of conflicts, authoritarian regimes and different forms of persecution on academic communities, on intellectual and physical displacement and on scientific development.

It will map continuities and peculiarities between past and present violations of academic freedom, linking this to a broader reflection on attacks faced by journalists, writers, artists, lawyers and human rights activists.   

Public talks will be organized around a cycle of 4 events (held in the Fall and/or Spring semester). Talks will be given by University of Trento experts, invited speakers as well as students enrolled in the university course, who will present their advocacy reports.
