LSE statement on Human Rights blog

LSE spokesperson

“LSE has received a number of complaints regarding a recent post on the student-led Human Rights blog. The post was by a non-LSE academic and, as noted on the blog, the views expressed were by the author alone.

With all academic engagement, the School will seek to balance research quality, academic freedom and the wider public impact. LSE uses blogs, among other channels, to offer a platform for academic discussion on often contentious and emotive topics. The School has firm guidelines on blog posts and editorial procedure.

Regretfully, editorial guidelines were not followed in this instance. The blog post has now been taken down.”
