The general principles of and restrictions on freedom of expression are practically applied to the academic community and institutions, as no clear international restrictions have been specified for freedom of expression on campus. However, since higher education institutions are the marketplace of ideas for future generations, states should be cautious when restricting this freedom. Currently, those international restrictions on free expression created huge hinderance to the educational process.
From an international perspective, the research will focus on analyzing the theories, legal interpretations, and boundaries of the restrictive standards and their suitability to be applied “on campus”.
The comparison between the different theories and legal systems of various democratic countries may suggest new ways to achieve an international or regional agreement specified in “The Restrictions on Freedom of Expression on Campus”.
The research will shed light on the negative and positive aspects of the freedom of political expression on campus through the legal experience of United Kingdom and United States of America. In addition, it will examine the impact of the general international restrictions on freedom of political expression on the human rights violations that occur on campuses.
