Title:«New requirements for higher education, academic freedom and business interests»
(Nuevos requerimientos en la educación superior, libertad de cátedra e intereses empresariales)
Section:Social matters, rights and freedom. Fall 2009
Abstract:Academic freedom poses an important problem in the current higher education system, which has an European scope. As it has been granted as a fundamental human right in all countries belonging to the so-called "common area", academic freedom exercise opposes to specific features in the regulation reform, which seem to be aimed to favor certain private business interests. The pretended advanced and innovative teaching methodologies and the institutional actions and proceedings aimed to limit this right and guarantee face the constitutional order in these countries and harm the very right to education.
Keywords:European Higher Education Area, educational system, University, academic freedom, capitalist interests, teaching method, education right
