Solidarity with Turkish Colleagues
The Assoziation für kritische Gesellschaftsforschung (AkG, The Association for Critical Social Research) calls on the Turkish government to respect the autonomy and freedom of opinion of Academics for Peace.

Criticism of the state is a fundamental principle of democracy and it cannot be arbitrarily restricted or punished for political reasons. The investigations into Academics for Peace must stop immediately so that the people who have been subjected to them can continue their scholarly work without restrictions.
