About this project

This campaign is supported by the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB). It aims to support the livelihood and study of postgraduate students and research assistants in Academics for Peace network who have been persecuted by the Turkish government. They are mostly social scientists, specialized in critical research on contemporary Turkey. Yet, most of them could not leave Turkey due to travel bans and the confiscation of their passports. Among them, 160 students are in need of urgent financial support.
