On 27 January 2016, the Centre for the Study of Human Rights at the London School of Economics and Politica Science hosted a panel discussion titled “Emergencies of Peace: The Exceptional State of (Academic) Affairs in Contemporary Turkey.” This panel was organized by the Internationalism, Cosmopolitanism and the Politics of Solidarity (ICPS) research group led by Ayça Çubukçu, Assistant Professor in Human Rights at LSE, and a co-editor of Jadaliyya's Turkey Page. The panel addressed the legal and extra-legal persecution of more than 1000 academics in Turkey for having signed a peace petition. The various panelists situated this attack on academics within a wider political and historical context. Subjects discussed included the collapse of the peace process in Turkey and current developments in Cizre and beyond, as well as the history of Academics for Peace—the group that had organized the peace petition.

I must confess that I had hoped for a different winner – not a head of state or human rights campaigner, but an ordinary, 48-year-old woman, whose distinction was that she had lost her son this year at the tender age of 26.click | email | tweet
