30 August 2017

Professor Eric Heinze, who was interviewed for the article, said: “I think [the students] do have a point. It’s tempting to say [the Daily Mail] is just the Daily Hate.” But he suggests the ban is “problematical because of … this tendency to pull away from the world [and] not trust people to form their own decisions.” Read the full article.

  • Eric Heinze is Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
