This article concerns the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on academic freedom. In the dramatic framework of the pandemic, science is playing a pivotal role and many aspects of its freedom are challenged. I examine the monopolisation of scientific debate, the impact of “social distancing” on achievement of research objectives and the new challenges of digital teaching. Focusing on the Italian situation, I look at the pros and cons of measures adopted to tackle the emergency.

Abstract

This article concerns the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on academic freedom. In the dramatic framework of the pandemic, science is playing a pivotal role and many aspects of its freedom are challenged. I examine the monopolisation of scientific debate, the impact of “social distancing” on achievement of research objectives and the new challenges of digital teaching. Focusing on the Italian situation, I look at the pros and cons of measures adopted to tackle the emergency.
