The Academic Freedom Network is a platform established as a partnership between Humboldt University of Berlin, Free University of Berlin, Academics in Solidarity, Off-University, Einstein Fellows Research Group and The New University in Exile Consortium (The New School, NY, USA). There are four main goals:

  1. To build a network between researchers at risk and a larger academic community.
  2. To promote research cooperation and discussion on academic freedom with regard to the shared problems of the researchers, such as political pressure, precariousness, as well as public health, and climate change.
  3. To enhance the cross-organizational cooperation between the individual initiatives by setting up a platform to expand common capacities, as well as the exchange of information and strategies.
  4. To support the goals of the BCGE and the BUA, to consolidate academic freedom, to make it visible and to promote it.
