Court Finds ENS Guilty of "Inhibiting Freedom of Expression"
I blogged a while ago about the cancellation of a meeting at the École Normale Supérieure at which Stéphane Hessel and others were to speak in the context of a debate about the status of Palestine. The organizers of the event were clearly anti-Israeli in orientation but promised to allow contradictory views to be expressed. The Administrative Tribunal of Paris has now ruled that ENS was guilty of "inhibiting the freedom of expression." The school must now revisit its decision.
