On November 4, 2023, FAU celebrated a major anniversary. On this occasion, Prof. Dr. Katrin Kinzelbach from the Institute of Political Science, together with the university archivist Dr. Clemens Wachter, took a look at the founding statutes of FAU. They discovered restrictions on academic freedom that are – from today’s perspective – astonishing. Anyone who missed professor Kinzelbach’s speech on the topic “Academic freedom is a human right – what is the status of its protection worldwide” can now watch it on FAU TV (minutes 59:30 – 1:15:15).
