The Magna Charta Observatory

By the year 2000, the number of signatories had grown, as had the demand for monitoring, enhancing and advising on the status of academic freedom and institutional autonomy. Consequently, the European University Association and the University of Bologna jointly created the Observatory.

Since then, the Observatory acts on behalf of the Magna Charta.

Every September, at the anniversary of the signing, the Observatory organizes a congress on related issues – such as Media and Academic Freedom, or Malpractice and Corruption, etc. – and invites new signatories to the Magna Charta.

The Observatory is a signatories’ association, independent from political organisations or interest groups.

The signatory universities – through their rectors, presidents and vice-chancellors, who act on behalf of their institutions – are connected to the organization by their commitment, present and future, to comply with the principles of the Magna Charta Universitatum.

The Observatory undertakes its work to ensure the integrity of intellectual and scientific work in Institutions and society, thus reinforcing trust in relationship between universities and their communities, be they local, regional, national or global.
