Abstract

Are there limits to academic freedom and, if so, what are they? For instance, are some views so controversial and offensive that they should not be aired, even in academic institutions which are meant to be dedicated to the pursuit of truth, and even where such views are the product of research? Based on a series of events at the University of Edinburgh in 1996, this case examines these issues in the context of a multi-cultural society. This is a short case but will certainly sustain intense discussion for a one or two - hour seminar, especially if used in conjunction with wider reading.
