La Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la UAM en apoyo a los académicos turcos

12/02/2016

La Junta de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, reunida el pasado 3 de febrero de 2016, se sumó a la preocupación expresada por la declaración de la European University Association, relativa a la grave situación creada a raíz de las represalias que han sufrido académicos críticos con la actuación del Gobierno turco en la región sur-oriental del país.

El texto de la declaración es el siguiente:

Brussels, 20 January 2016

EUA deeply concerned about Turkey’s treatment of academics 

“The European University Association (EUA) would like to express its concern for the academics in Turkey being investigated for expressing their views, under the petition “We Will not be a Party to this Crime”, on the conflict in the South-East region. EUA would also like to underline that, irrespective of the content of the petition, freedom of expression is a core university value and a sine qua non of democratic societies. We therefore urge the government of Turkey to fully respect the right to express any opinion in public without censorship or restraint as well as the Higher Education Council (YÖK) to withdraw its request to the rectors to open up an inquiry on the signatories. 

More particularly, EUA is dismayed by the detainment of some signatory academics - even if they were released on the same day - most of them from Kocaeli University, an EUA member.”
