We shared our concerns about the repression of democratic and academic freedoms in Turkey. We endorse the Call for Solidarity by Academics for Peace. Members of “Academics for Peace” and Education and Science Workers Union (EğitimSEN) have been removed from their positions in public higher education institutions permanently!
We call on all governments and institutions of the Free World to condemn the recent actions of the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms and to withdraw any support for President Erdogan until civil liberties are restored in his country.
In an Open Letter to Turkish President Erdogan, EuroScience expresses great concerns about the threats to the openness, independence and autonomy of the scientific and educational endeavour in Turkey.
