NEPS statement on
academic freedom in Turkey

The Network of European Peace Scientists (NEPS) is concerned about reports on the current situation for academic freedom in Turkey. NEPS as an organization does not take positions on domestic political issues or the original petition by the "Academics for Peace”. However, as an organization with a commitment to academic freedom in the scientific study of conflict and peace, we see it as essential that academics must be allowed to express their views openly, and without the fear of persecution. We call on the Turkish government to protect academic freedom and prevent the persecution of academics.
