CEU Philosophy Department stands with Boğaziçi University

February 5, 2021

We in the CEU Philosophy Department are deeply alarmed and concerned about the news from Boğaziçi University. Boğaziçi is an institution with which we have strong links and which is well-known for its ethos of independent and free thinking and high academic standards. Political appointments to positions of power in the university will put these valuable traditions under threat. We stand in solidarity with those protesting against the political appointment of the Rector.
