The epidemic of campus censorship

The Free Speech University Rankings (FSUR) is back. The first-of-its-kind analysis of the state of free speech on Britain’s campuses has published its second, annual set of findings – and things are not looking good. Our survey, ranking 115 UK universities using our traffic-light system, shows that 90 per cent of universities censor speech – up from 80 per cent in 2015. Read the 2016 results. And, if you want to join the campaign against campus censorship, contact the FSUR team today.
