ANU College of Law Research Paper No. 08-35
This paper considers how the contemporary environment is inducing a less critical approach towards research and impacting on academic freedom. It argues that it is not only the interventionist acts of Ministers and terror censorship that academics need to worry about, for the need to satisfy funding bodies is more insidiously exercising a depoliticising effect on research.
