The panel discussion will explore the question of academic freedom in Germany. What does it mean when more and more cost and benefit aspects of science come to the fore, when theoretical research and so-called orchid subjects are denied the right to exist? What are the conditions of scientists working in Germany and where are there (unwanted) boundaries and interventions? Where do we have to actively protect the freedom of science and what should we do about it? Panel guests: Prof. Dr. h.c. Jutta Allmendinger**,** Ph.D., President of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center Dr. Nausikaä El-Mecky, Tenure Track professor Art History, Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona and Die Junge Akademie Ilyas Saliba, Research Fellow of the Research Uni "Democracy and Democratization", WZB Berlin Social Science Center Prof. Dr. Uwe Schimank, professor for sociology, University of Bremen This event is part of the WZB series "Achtung: Demokratie" and is moderated by Dr. Fabian Schmidt (Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics and Die Junge Akademie).
