Ben Barış için Akademisyenler bildirisini imzalamış akademisyenlerden biriyim. Bir süredir Barış için imzacı akademisyenler olarak bilinen bizlere yönelmiş olan baskıların ve hak ihlallerinin bugün yeni bir boyuta vardığını görüyor ve bunun daha da büyümesinden endişeleniyoruz. Örneğin darbe girişimi sonrasında pek çok imzacı akademisyen üniversitedeki görevlerinden uzaklaştırıldıkları gördükçe bu endişemiz güçleniyor. Nitekim benim yaşadıklarım da benzer biçimde insanlara nereye doğru gidiyoruz sorusunu sorduracak nitelikte.

Gegen die Akademiker*innen für den Frieden in der Türkei wurde nach dem 10.1.2016 eine Hexenjagd eingeleitet; dabei wurden Hunderte Opfer von Disziplinarverfahren. Die Hexenjagd begann, nachdem die Akademiker*innen für den Frieden eine Petition veröffentlicht hatten. Diese Petition kritisierte das brutale Vorgehen des türkischen Staates gegen die kurdische Bevölkerung, welches auf die Verhängung eines monatelangen Ausnahmezustandes folgte und zu außerrechtlichen Tötungen im Südosten des Landes führte (CAT 2016: 3f).

Last week, the Marxist historian Candan Badem of Tunceli University was taken into custody, accused of involvement in the attempted military coup in Turkey. A book by Fethullah Gulen that was found in his office was used as evidence linking Badem with the Gulen movement, which the Turkish president has accused of being behind the attempted coup. Although Badem was released the next day, he is reportedly still under judicial control

After the July 15 coup attempt in Turkey, one of the first actions of the Turkish state and government was to purge thousands of academics and deans from office.

In a crackdown that rapidly spread across civil and military services, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ordered the closure of thousands of private schools and many universities. Some 15,000 employees at the education ministry were fired, while more than 1,500 university deans were asked to resign.

The British Academy, the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh deplore the attempted military coup d’état in Turkey. In keeping with the democratic principles which have been secured, we urge that the state’s responses towards individuals and offices thought to be involved be fully compliant with the rules and norms of democratic government, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights. We are particularly concerned that these be observed in relation to the academic and research community in Turkey, where our sister academies have unequivocally condemned the coup. We are disturbed to hear that in the coup’s aftermath the Turkish Government has asked over 1,500 university deans to resign, and has placed a ban on all academics travelling abroad. Freedom of expression, due process, and the free mobility of researchers provide the bedrock of the academic endeavour in a democratic society
