Demonstrations on Campus and the Case of Israeli Apartheid Week
Richard Moon takes up the question of whether there should be more restrictions on freedom of expression in the university in order for it to fulfill its educational mission, noting that the injury of racist and other forms of bigoted speech may be more harmful in the closer environment and tighter community of the campus. He identifies potential problems with greater restriction of expression within the university and explores the issues through an examination of the annual campus Israeli Apartheid Week.
