IAMCR supports Turkish scholars
On 8 March 2014, a group of research assistants from Istanbul's Marmara University Faculty of Communication issued a statement to protest against the decision to expel two research assistants, Dr. Figen Algul and Can Ozbasaran from the Faculty, to penalise eight research assistants with a promotional suspension for 24 months and to implement a wage-cut in one case. These measures were taken in response to the research assistants joining the strike action organised by KESK (the Confederation of Public Workers’ Union) in June, which was related to the Gezi Park protests. The Higher Education Council of Turkey (YOK) still needs to confirm the expulsion.
