Senior academics oppose counter-terrorism bill proposal

The government is intent upon introducing legislation which places a legal duty on colleges and universities to 'prevent people being drawn into terrorism'. This proposed part of the counter-terrorism and security bill has been condemned across the political spectrum and by students, staff and institution heads from across our sector.

The following letter was sent to the broadsheet press in the run up to further debate in the House of Lords during February 2015.


We write as senior academics who are deeply concerned that the counter-terrorism and security bill currently being debated in parliament will place an unlawful and unenforceable duty on educational institutions and staff.

One of the purposes of post-compulsory education is to foster critical thinking in staff, students and society more widely. Our universities and colleges are centres for debate and open discussion, where received wisdom can be challenged and controversial ideas put forward in the spirit of academic endeavour.

This principle of academic freedom is enshrined in the Education (No 2) Act 1986, which places a duty on universities and colleges to 'ensure that freedom of speech within the law is secured for members, students and employees of the establishment and for visiting speakers.'

Part 5 of the proposed new legislation would place a statutory duty on those same institutions to prevent students being drawn into terrorism. We share the concerns raised by the joint committee for human rights about how this duty would work alongside existing requirements to ensure freedom of speech.

Universities already take their duty of care towards students very seriously. This proposed legislation is both unnecessary and ill-conceived and we are calling on the government to urgently rethink its proposals and take appropriate steps to ensure that academic freedom remains uncompromised by any efforts to tackle extremism in the UK.

The best response to acts of terror against UK civilians is to maintain and defend an open, democratic society. Ensuring colleges and universities can continue to debate difficult and unpopular issues is a vital part of this. Draconian crackdowns on the rights of academics and students will not achieve the ends the government says it seeks.
