Turkey: UCU protest at jail sentence for peace petition signatory

15 March 2019 | last updated: 21 March 2019

As part of our ongoing solidarity work, UCU has written to the Turkish authorities to condemn the fifteen month jail sentence given to Professor Füsun Üstel, a retired political scientist from Galatasaray University.

Professor Üstel is one of the many 'Academics for Peace' who have been targeted by the Turkish government for signing a peace petition in 2016.

Please sign this online petition in support of Füsun Üstel.
