Professor Adam Bodnar to speak at the 2022 EUA Annual Conference

Openness, academic honesty, and freedom of expression are the values that underpin the mission of European universities. At the upcoming conference, members of the European University Association (EUA) will discuss the role of these values in an academic context and in democracy. Professor Adam Bodnar, Dean of the Faculty of Law at SWPS University in Warsaw, will be one of the speakers.

2022 EUA Annual Conference

The EUA Annual Conferences provide a platform to discuss current state and future challenges of higher education in Europe. This year the main topic is: University values: what, why and how? The plenary sessions will discuss academic freedom, “cancel culture”, “deplatforming”, and the role of values in university partnerships.

Professor Adam Bodnar has been invited to join the prestigious group of panelists. His lecture will focus on the role of academic freedom in protecting democratic values and on practical actions that universities can undertake to ensure that academic freedom is and remains a lived reality.

The 2022 EUA Annual Conference will take place at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics on April 28-29.
