The UK Young Academy is pleased to announce our commitment to the Stockholm Charter for Academic Freedom. The launch of this Charter on the 24th of January 2024 marks an important step towards academic freedom.
In May 2023, young academies from across Europe came together in Stockholm to collaboratively draft a Charter for Academic Freedom. The Charter is a commitment to the safeguarding of freedom of academic teaching, research, and dissemination.
We, the UK Young Academy are proud to be a signatory on this important document. The Charter reflects our commitment to the safeguarding of freedom of academics and researchers on a global scale in the face of growing challenges.
The signing of this Charter is a collective movement across young academies. Initiated by the Young Academy of Sweden, many other European young academies have signed alongside the UK Young Academy, including the Young Academy of Europe, Finland and Scotland.
