"There is a deep link between academic freedom—the ability to explore ideas, opinions, and knowledge, as well as to criticize the status quo without fear of reprisal—and genuine political freedom.  This is especially true of any country that aspires to some form of democracy.  Great movements in history—political, scientific, economic, and  cultural—always contain an element that comes from the academy, from schools or universities, or from writers and thinkers who are studied in schools and universities.

Your Excellency,

We are writing to manifest our indignation for the judgement concerning Dr. Noemi Levy-Aksu : 30 months in jail for signing the declaration “We will not be a party to this crime! 10.01.2016″. The accusation of “ supporting terrorism” because of an appeal for peace is absurd and ridiculous.

The International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs notes with great concern the ongoing judicial harassment of signatories of the Academics for Peace petition in Turkey. We are particularly alarmed at the imprisonment of Prof. Dr. Füsun Üstel and Dr. Tuna Altınel who have been deprived of their right to liberty since May 2019, and we call for an end to all such procedures.

Starting with the publication of an ‘Academics for Peace’ petition in January 2016, and further increasing after the attempted coup in July 2016, large numbers of state employees in Turkey have suffered dismissal or other sanctions without due process. Among them are several thousands of academics. Many Turkish universities have actively collaborated in the implementation of these government measures against their employees. Under its Human Rights Policy, Ghent University considers such universities as (co-)perpetrators of serious human rights violations.

Füsun Üstel, respected academic in history, nationalism and issues of identity, is the first of the Academics for Peace to be imprisoned for signing the “We will not be party to this crime!” petition. This ruling will likely influence the pending cases of other  Academics for Peace. Despite the threat of imprisonment, Üstel stood up for her belief that condemning human rights violations or calling for peace is not a crime.
