6.986 scholars purged from Turkish universities in wake of July 15 coup attempt

The data has been collected by tukeypurge.com and web portal Freedom for Turkish Academics so far, shows 6.986 scholars have been purged from Turkish universities with several decrees issued by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and AKP government in wake of July 15, 2016 coup attempt.

Turkey has survived a military coup attempt on July 15, 2016 that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others. Immediately after the putsch, the government along with President Erdoğan passed a decree ordering the closure of 15 universities and 800 student dormitories across Turkey. The shutting down of the universities has left 61,382 students in academic limbo.

The same decree and the following ones also ordered the dismissal of thousands of academics working at 108 Turkish universities. Hundreds of these academicians are currently under arrest behind the bars.
