Academic freedom in partner countries

The annual Academic Freedom Index (AFi) of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and the V-Dem Institute Gothenborg allows universities to assess the degree of academic freedom in a partner country. The UP is aware of the restrictions on academic freedom with certain partner countries and checks in each individual case whether partnerships meet its own standards for freedom of research and teaching.
