About us

Academics for Peace Germany (AfP-Germany) was founded in October 2017 by the academics who signed the now well-known ‘Peace Petition’ in Turkey in January 2016 and the colleagues who supported the values of academic freedom and freedom of speech. AfP-Germany organizes campaigns for the solidarity with peace academics and raises awareness and support with colleagues who have been threatened, targeted, lost their job, and banned from working in public service. Our aim is to function as an international “hub” for human rights organizations, NGOs, academics, as well as international press seeking information on the repression against the Academics for Peace in Turkey.
