Why the Danish Parliament’s Statement on ‘Politics Dressed as Science’ Worries Me

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


This column is about my personal experiences with the recent struggles over research freedom in Denmark. When Danish politicians threaten the freedom of academic research, I am concerned because I have seen how the politicization of what ‘counts’ as knowledge has affected my friends and colleagues in Anglo-academia, breeding an illiberal culture of fear and self-censorship.
