    Abstract:
    Today we witness a variety of attacks on the different forms of research. Opposing these attacks against scientists, journalists and artists, the demand for a freedom of research is an important common ground for organizing solidarity and publicly denouncing repres-sion, intimidation and manipulation. However, the notion of freedom of research is a complex one and it is worthwhile to pause for a short moment, in order to reflect on its possible implications and limitations and to ask: which freedom to defend?
