[Correspondence] Academic freedom needs active support

In her World Report, Sharmila Devi (April 28, p 1657)1 reported on increased stifling of human rights after the decision to hold presidential elections in Turkey. The concurrent suppression of academic freedom warrants specific mention. Since July, 2016, 6081 academics have been dismissed from their positions and from civic duty with statutory decrees, with an accompanying cancellation of their passports.2 Of the 15 universities that were shut down with statutory decree in July, 2016, some remain entirely shut down, with foreign students and employees deported or awaiting deportation under custody; others are being re-opened as state universities with new names, administration, academic staff, and student bodies.
