Funders and partners

Free Speech Debate is a project of the Dahrendorf Programme for the Study of Freedom at St Antony’s College in the University of Oxford. It has received intellectual, institutional and technical support from many parts of the university. The content of the site will be digitally archived by the Bodleian Library.

Core funding for the Dahrendorf Programme, and its annual Dahrendorf Lecture and Colloquium, has been provided by the Aurea Foundation and the Zeit Stiftung.

Special funding for the Free Speech Debate project has been provided by the Fritt Ord FoundationOpen Society Foundations and Google. We are most grateful to all these funders. Our agreements with them ensure the full academic independence of the project. For the avoidance of any doubt in places where such suspicions are sometimes aired: we neither receive any money from governments nor have been influenced by them in any way.

External partnerships we have developed in the course of this project include collaborations with WordPress (on which the site is built), the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia UK, CoveritLiveopenDemocracyGlobal Voices, Guardian Comment Network, Eurozine and IDEA.
