New Entry Order Also Damaging to Research
“The US President’s new entry order also aims to discriminate against a large number of people based on their origins”, said HRK President Horst Hippler on hearing of the newly formulated entry ban. “This includes many students and researchers. This not only means considerable restrictions for those directly affected, but also foments a general atmosphere of distrust of foreigners. That endangers the open-mindedness that is of crucial importance to universities. I therefore support the renewed Protest by the European University Association (EUA), whose members include the HRK and many German universities”.
