Day 1 Panel Discussion - Impact of HASS Research

About the session
Research empowers us to ask tomorrow’s questions today. As with other disciplines, the impact of research in the areas of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences is not always immediately or directly noticeable. In this session, panelists will deliberate upon the demonstrable and sometimes not-so-demonstrable contribution that research in HASS areas makes to society and to our understanding of the future.

Day 1 Panel Discussion - Safeguarding Freedom of Expression

About the session
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights includes freedom of expression, yet freedom of speech is continuously under threat. The criminalization of free expression, attempts to regulate the media, campus speech codes and attempts at censorship are not ancient history—they are alive and well today. How do we safeguard our free expression?
