All over the world, universities are being asked to become financially “autonomous” as public expenditure on education is slashed rapidly by governments that spend many times as much on tax cuts to the rich, on military budgets, on “bail-ins” and “bail-outs” of banks and corporations. Even so, academic autonomy lies in the vice-grip of governments that fear intellectual rigour and which seek to undermine the academic autonomy of universities. Today, however, that hideous spectre, seen before in the apocalyptic 1930s in Germany, Italy, and Spain, looms over universities in this country, and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is a test case.
