In Turkey, universities have become a central ideological battleground and a target of government oppression, affecting academics as well as students. The Civic Space Studies (CSS) has been established as an association aimed at supporting the expansion of civic space, monitoring and countering the crackdown on civic activism by the government. With EED’s support, the association’s objective is to bring the issue of persecution of student activists and young rights advocates to the fore and provide much needed support to campus activism.
