Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a historical overview of the concept of academic freedom, and then a comparison of the development and protections of academic freedom in Germany, the United States and Sweden. Not surprisingly, the argument is made here for greater and more explicit constitutional protections with respect to academic freedom.

Academic freedom is a fundamental concept in the world of academia, but despite it being often cited, there is little detail in the law to offer any substantive definition of what it is. Historically, academic freedom has been discussed from three different perspectives, the general freedom of the university as originally a religious corporate body separate from the royal power, the academic freedom of students, and the academic freedom of professors with respect to enquiry and teaching. This chapter focuses on the academic freedom of professors, and this from the legal parameters found in the German, American and Swedish systems.
