Academic freedom and institutional autonomy are often assumed to be synonymous. In some debates about higher education in South Africa, this assumption has led to the supposition that universities are less autonomous – and therefore less free – than they were during the time of apartheid. This paper argues that such a juxtaposition is fallacious. The terms of debate need to be shifted so that the relationship between the state and the university can be re-examined, and re-aligned.
