Permission to Speak Freely? Managing Government Employee Speech

On April 5, 2024, the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and experts for a symposium exploring the speech rights of public employees—from the civil service and public sector unions to educators and researchers.

In our deeply polarized political environment, the question of how a democracy ought to manage the speech of some 22 million public employees is more important than ever. We’ll examine this issue through a series of conversations about First Amendment, administrative, and labor law; democratic theory and political contestation; and the balance between transparency and autonomy.

The symposium, “Permission to Speak Freely? Managing Government Employee Speech in a Democracy,” is part of a collaboration between the Knight Institute and the Institute’s 2023-2024 Senior Visiting Research Scholar Sam Lebovic.
