What do we aim
More and more academics loses their jobs, social security, and at times right to liberty because of the content of their production, standing in the face of widespread oppression or exercising their academic freedom of speech. CDPR supports knowledge production or other ways of critical engagement with the society that is facilitated by expelled academics.
What do we do
Since April 2019, with the partnership of 10 organisations in Turkey active in 8 cities of Turkey, we are working in a capacity building programme that provides support to core funding, travel grants, skill building workshops as well as training opportunities to these organisations that are created by purged academics. The programme is supported by the European Endowment for Democracy with a budget of 130,000 euros.
