As the new academic year begins for many, we are reminded of the 5,717 academics from 117 universities in Turkey who have been fired since July 2016. Only 140 of them have been reinstated in their jobs.

Bianet has published a map with details of the number of academics fired in each of the 117 universities in 81 cities.

IAMCR has issued various statements about the situation in Turkey and continues to monitor the situation and to encourage its members to express their solidarity with our Turkish colleagues.
