The University as Political Actor: A Bloody Business

Andrew Edwards • Jan 14 2008 • Articles
“Our greatest investment is in our intellectual assets” working to address “challenges from the environment to medicine" proudly proclaims University College London (UCL) Provost, Malcolm Grant. UCL runs an MSc Systems Engineering course in partnership with BAE Systems, Britain's largest arms company, responsible for producing artillery guns, munitions and missiles, even warships and nuclear submarines, and whose customers include the repressive Saudi Arabian secret services, the Israeli Defence Forces, the US army and the Indonesian forces responsible for violently extinguishing West Papua's secession movement.
