Index on Censorship
Index on Censorship is delighted to be a partner in this year’s Battle of Ideas. Freedom of expression is at the heart of the festival, with its mix of dynamic, challenging, robust debate. And standing up for freedom of expression is what we do on a daily basis at Index. So it’s a perfect match.
John Kampfner, CEO of Index on Censorship
"Just when Kant's formulation that 'the public exercise of reason should be free' had begun to seem so remote and exhausted, the Battle should reinforce one's faith in the enduring worth of dissent and of the free traffic in ideas"
