The university condemns Turkey's restrictions on academic freedom

The University of Borås is very concerned by the restrictions on freedom of expression and the weakening of democratic values taking place in Turkey.

We agree with the statement by the European University Association and the Scholars at Risk. The key to a favourable social development, justice and welfare is teachers, researchers and students sovereign right to develop, create, test and disseminate knowledge. All measures restricting this right are reprehensible. Academic freedom must always be protected and the measures taken in Turkey strongly condemned by all.
