Sciences Po supports
- Liberté, égalité, fraternité
The Scientific Council of Sciences Po is solemnly protests against the situation of academics in Turkey, many of them being victims of a political repression from the goverment, unable to carrying out their teaching and research activities under normal conditions.
The Scientific Council is alarmed by the on-goint threat to academic freedom and recalls that the university is based on an undeniable principle: independence from any political, ideological, economic or religious pressure.
He expresses his solidarity with the Turkish academic community and, together with the Sciences Po administration, participates in the program PAUSE (Program of Assistance to the Emergency Hospitality of Scientists in Exile - Programme d’aide à l’Accueil en Urgence des Scientifiques en Exil) proposed by the French Ministry of Higher Education And Research, which aims to welcome Turkish academics in refugee situations.
