Two Brisbane academics claim the University of Queensland suppressed the results of their study into racial discrimination on city buses after complaints from Translink.
But the university says the study was pulled because the pair didn’t get the proper ethics approvals before going ahead with their work.
In 2013, Dr Redzo Mujcic and Professor Paul Frijters, from the university’s School of Economics, published an early working paper finding strong evidence of discrimination against black-skinned people on Brisbane buses.
