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.

The author addresses his "buddies" to neutralize the effect of a paralyzing fear of arrest that may have made some of them too cautious to participate in demonstrations.... His goal is to demystify the experience of arrest as an antidote to fear.click | email | tweet
