Academic Freedom Survey

The SAR World Academic Freedom Survey/Index seeks to produce a comprehensive measure of the health of higher education communities worldwide with respect to core values of academic freedom, institutional autonomy and respect for human rights.  A prototype survey/index has been developed and is undergoing testing. SAR invites researchers and funders interested in supporting this effort.

University of Lincoln (UK) CERD Surveys of Academic Freedom:  Scholars at Risk is very pleased to support the efforts of colleagues at the University of Lincoln’s Centre for Educational Research and Development (CERD). Drs. Terence Karran, Klaus Dieter Beiter (visiting), and Kwadwo Appiagyei-Atua (visiting) have developed surveys measuring academic freedom at the institutional and national levels. Scholars at Risk urges academics and researchers to complete the appropriate survey by clicking on the links below. The survey can be completed in about 15 minutes. Responses are confidential and will help inform CERD research and SAR advocacy aimed at increasing protection of higher education communities worldwide.  Click the appropriate link to complete the survey now:
