In support of the text, the Guild’s Secretary-General Jan Palmowski expressed that universities – in the UK and across continental Europe – have a duty to point to the interdependence of our histories and cultures, and they should have the ability to do it in practice: through research collaboration and the movement of ideas and people.

In a separate statement the UK-based university network, Russell Group, endorsed the Guild's comments today.
