Statement on the situation in Turkey

The University of Tübingen is deeply concerned that the Turkish government is restricting many academic freedoms, has banned researchers from traveling, and has suspended or dismissed critical academics. The University of Tübingen appeals to the Turkish government to respect the independence of research and teaching. Academic institutions can only flourish with open dialogue on academic matters.
