Academic freedom under pressure in Turkey: EUA statement of solidarity with universities and scholars

EUA expresses solidarity with universities and scholars where academic freedom is under pressure, especially in Turkey where there are reports of retaliation against academics who have expressed their views on military action in south-eastern Turkey. EUA stands up for university values and calls on all governments, universities and scholars, as well as all higher education stakeholders to remain committed to the internationally recognised principles of academic freedom and to work towards constructive dialogue.
