This page intentionally left blank SECTION 1: AUTONOMY AND THE INDIVIDUAL RESEARCHER This page intentionally left blank ACADEMIC FREEDOM IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES: THE FREEDOM TO SERVE SOCIETY Gerlese S. A˚kerlind Academic freedom means the ability and integrity to conduct research for the public good without fear or favour. Academic freedom is the obligation of academics to make social and political commentary. (anonymous social scientist) This chapter is based on an empirical investigation of the range of ways of understanding the concept of academic freedom among social scientists in Australian universities.

However, let me remind the reader at this point that the argument for the validity of these different understandings does not come from the data presented in this chapter, but from an earlier survey of 165 social science academics in Australia. The aim of this chapter is not to justify the categorisation of understandings – this was done in the previous paper – but to add depth and meaning to the original categorisation, through the development of case study vignettes to illustrate how individuals may experience these different ways of understanding academic freedom.
