What Would it Take to Make Knowledge-Sharing Possible?

It’s open access week on Brill. So, in this episode of Humanities Matter on Spotify, Ramzi Nasir and guests break down the concept of open access to research. Is it a basic human right? What’s its role in shaping global development? And how are technologies – both new and old – influencing a movement for it?


Ramzi speaks with Professor John Willinsky, author of “Development and Open Access,” a chapter in Brill’s Critical Perspectives on International Education, and Professor Michael A. Peters, author of “Degrees of Freedom: Open Source, Open Access and Free Science,” a chapter in Knowledge Economy, Development and the Future of Higher Education, published by Brill.
