Guardian: Armed Forces in Universities

Previously I have written an article titled Get the Armed Forces Away From Universities that was published in the Huffington Post. In the article I was calling for Universities to ban the armed forces from University grounds. Guardian decided to run a little story on the issue and called me up for a brief interview. From our chat,  the following made it to the article:

George Iordanou, a doctoral researcher in political theory at the University of Warwick, says: “Students are vulnerable because of the low chances of finding employment on graduating, the student loan bubble and increased fees.

“The army are not the problem, but universities shouldn’t be making the political decision of allowing them to be on campuses. It’s not that they shouldn’t have access to students, but that market should happen outside university.”

You can read the whole article, titled Armed forces make over 300 visits to UK universities in two years by clicking on the title.
