Oxford Brookes University statement on postponed lecture

A statement from Oxford Brookes University on the postponement of a lecture on Tuesday 19 November 2019.

“Oxford Brookes is an open environment where academic freedom and freedom of speech are fundamental to our functioning, including debate and the challenging of views. Within this context and our statutory duties, visiting speakers are offered the same freedom of speech within the law as staff and students

“The University took the decision to postpone a lecture on Tuesday (19 November 2019) as it had not been booked through the usual process for confirming external speakers. Postponement will allow appropriate time to ensure this process takes place.”
