Columbia University Press, January 2023
Dimitar Gueorguiev, associate professor of political science, has contributed to and edited a book that examines the increasingly dire state of academic freedom in Asia.
“New Threats to Academic Freedom in Asia” (Columbia University Press, 2023) is a collaborative and international effort sponsored by the Open Society Foundations, supported by the Association for Asian Studies and workshopped with help from the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs. The book’s contributors examine questions of academic freedom in locations from India to Japan, using cross-national data and in-depth case studies to shed light on the multifaceted nature of academic censorship and provide reference points to those working in restrictive academic environments.
In addition to organizing and editing the collection, Gueorguiev wrote the introduction, “Progress under Threat: Academic Freedom in Asia.” He is a senior research associate for the South Asia Center, an advisory board member for the East Asia Program and director of Chinese studies at Syracuse University.
Gueorguiev’s research focuses on comparative political economy, authoritarian institutions, governance and survey methods. He received a Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego, in 2014.
