ISPP's Central Office wishes to extend tremendous thanks to our volunteers for the 2016 conference in Warsaw. Volunteers helped not only hand out conference materials and direct people to meeting rooms, but also jumped in and helped with calling embassies and checking on lodging and other resources when conference attendees were affected by the attempted coup to overthrow the Turkish government. We could not have done it without you, so many, MANY thanks!
A Joint Statement on the Ongoing Situation in Turkey
As professional associations of social scientists in various disciplines, some of which have members in Turkey, the organizations listed below are deeply concerned about recent reports of infringements of academic freedom in Turkey, in particular in the aftermath of the recent attempt at a coup d’état. These reports refer, amongst other things, to the dismissal of over 1500 university deans and professors, and to a ban on foreign travel for all academics in Turkey. We do not want to interfere in domestic Turkish politics, but we can and must speak out when academic freedom is at risk. Academic freedom is vital for all disciplines, but particularly so for scholars studying social and political developments. We call on the Turkish political authorities to take all possible steps to guarantee that our members, affiliates, and other academics are allowed to continue their scholarly work without interference. Meanwhile we offer our sympathy and support to our Turkish members/affiliates and other academics in Turkey.
