Freedom of expression
Durham University is committed to freedom of expression within the law.
Our Policy Statement and our Code of Practice on Freedom of Expression are robust and set out clear expectations and processes for activities affiliated to, funded by, or branded as Durham University.
To our knowledge, in recent years, we are not aware of a single occasion where a speaker has not been invited to speak at the University due to controversial views.
