Following the massive purge in Turkey’s academia during the State of Emergency, HRFT initiated a special program to support academics who had been dismissed from public universities for having endorsed the by now internationally well-known Peace Petition.
Established in 2017, HRFT Academy conducts scientific research on human rights related issues, while at the same time carrying out a wide range of training and advocacy activities.
