Both academic and non-academic members of ICTS-TIFR are free to explore and express diverse ideas in the pursuit of human knowledge, as interpreted in the broadest terms. They are free to participate in public discussions on such ideas. All members of ICTS-TIFR retain their fundamental right to freedom of expression as guaranteed in the Constitution. This includes the freedom to publicly articulate views that might be critical of those in positions of authority, whether at the Centre or elsewhere.

It is understood, by default, that the views of an individual member do not reflect the official position of the Centre.
