Sciences-Po Paris cancels conference at Aydın University in Istanbul in solidarity with the Academics for Peace

According to Bianet, Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences-Po Paris) has cancelled the conference “Refugee Question in Europe and Turkey’s Role” planned to be held together with İstanbul Aydın University. This cancellation is the result of the campaign of Viva la Vida, that grew in response to Aydın University's firing of Professor Battal Odabaşı, one of the signatories of the Peace Petition of the Academics for Peace.
