The Letter to Tsing-Hua University from Professor Joseph Raz

Professor Joseph Raz has sent a letter to the President of the Tsing-Hua University, Beijing China to  address his concern for the Tsing-Hua’s decision of dismissing Professor Zu Zhangrun from teaching. Here is the Professor Raz’s letter!

In April 2019 when Professor Xu Zhangrun was suspended by Tsing-Hua University, IVR- Taiwan Section announced the statement of Freedom of Speech and Academic Freedom Shall Not Be Infringed  to call on Tsing-Hua University to take academic freedom seriously. Unfortunately one year passed by, Tsing-Hua University’s decision of dismissal send a message to the world that freedom of speech and academic freedom might be compromised in this University.

Joseph Raz針對北京清華大學開除許章潤教授的決定,寫了一封信件給北京清華大學校長表達關切,希望學校改變其決定。(相關訊息在此

在去年四月時,當北京清華禁止許章潤教授教學等研究工作時,台灣法理學會即發出公開信(言論自由與學術自由不容侵犯),呼籲北京清華必須保障學術與言論自由。言論自由與學術自由任何社會要進步與民主穩固的必要基石,北京清華的數個舉動不僅針對許章潤教授個人有莫大傷害,對於整個學校的聲譽以及學術環境也造成深遠影響。
