Statement of solidarity with the academics in Turkey and Turkish scholars abroad

Published at: 21 July 2016

An Open Letter to the AESOP academic community: Statement of solidarity with the academics in Turkey and Turkish scholars abroad

In the current unsettling climate of Turkey, the Turkish government prohibits the basic pillars of the scientific and academic works by limiting the freedom of speech, mobility and international exchange of the academics in Turkey, and of Turkish academics abroad. We, as the AESOP Thematic Group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures, are concerned about these silences and the selective condemnations. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues affected by this and fully claim for their rights to practice their profession in a full extent, in a global community of academic scholars.
