  • Turkse vlagIn the aftermath of the military coup attempt, the Turkish government is conducting a clean-up of its public sector. In the process, more than 50.000 people have already been suspended, discharged or arrested in this process. Although the operation is carried out by a democratically elected government, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel whishes to express its deep concern about these proceedings. Indeed, these are putting the rule of law and the freedom of expressions under a lot of pressure. Furthermore, the university condemns the forced resignation of more than 1,500 academics, including many university deans and rectors. It also deplores the wave of discharges and suspensions in the Turkish compulsory education, which affects more than 15,000 people. VUB also expresses its indignation at the recall to Turkey of all Turkish academics staying abroad. 

  • Victoria Hernandez is about to graduate the Master in Communication with a focus on New Media and Society in Europe. She gratefully wrote us her experience because she would like the VUB community to know about the program’s impact on international students like herself. Enjoy her inspiring story.
