Welcome to the blog of the OSUN Global Observatory on Academic Freedom! It is our pleasure to share with you inspiring, challenging, reflective and inviting contributions on the topic of academic freedom by our colleagues throughout the world. This blog serves as a meeting point of researchers on academic freedom, as an open space for debate and a forum for exchange of opinions in a more relaxed and open format than the usual academic writing.

If you wish to send a proposal for contribution, we are looking for essays/articles/research notes (800 to 2000 words), please get in touch at goaf@ceu.edu and we would be very happy to consider your proposal and hopefully, publish it. Before sending the full blog post, please send us your proposal with title and a brief abstract. Please follow the Chicago Manual of Style for references.
