The Australian National University in Canberra has dumped plans to introduce a degree on ‘Western civilisation.’ The Ramsey Centre, chaired by former prime minister John Howard, was to offer 40 scholarships in the first two years of the program.

According to The Australian, “The backdown follows intervention by the National Tertiary Education Union and the Australian National University Student Association, which had claimed the program would push a ‘racist’ and ‘radically conservative agenda’.”
