In solidarity with our Turkish colleagues and for academic liberty

«More than 1400 academics have signed a petition criticising Turkey’s human rights record in its Eastern provinces. Turkish authorities have since began criminal investigations against all signatories and many universities have began administrative investigations that may result in dismissal.

We, academics and researchers from the Council of the European Association for Political Economy (EAEPE), are profoundly concerned about the intolerable decline of academic freedoms in Turkey and the discrimination of our fellow academics.

Turkey is a signatory of the European Convention for the protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Based on these agreements and the Constitution of the Republic of Turkey, the state is required to protect freedom of thought, expression and assembly.
We thereby ask that academic freedom of expression and freedom of expression for all citizens are fully respected» - The EAEPE Council

Prof. Varoufakis - Greek Minister of Finance

The Council of the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE), the largest pluralist economics association in Europe, welcomes the appointment of Yanis Varoufakis as Finance Minister of Greece. EAEPE and other non-orthodox economics associations in Europe and the USA have had long-standing fruitful interactions with Professor Varoufakis. He has often contributed to our annual conferences. Professor Varoufakis, established non-orthodox economist and renowned critic of simplistic neoclassical economic thought and of one-sided neoliberal policy prescriptions, will need all support of the critical Greek and European economists. We wish him all success against the biased economic ideas that have been setting Europe adrift and engulfed Greece in the abyss of an economic and humanitarian catastrophe. We wish him and the newly appointed Greek government the best luck and greatest success for an economic and social renaissance of their country.
