This Week in Turkey’s guest was Boğaziçi University academician Zeynep Gambetti. Mrs. Gambetti is an associate professor of political theory. She joined us to speak about the Boğaziçi University protests that have been ongoing for five weeks. Mrs. Gambetti described how the last five weeks have gone by, as well as this week’s harsh government response in terms of hate speech and police brutality, where hundreds of students have been detained. Mrs. Gambetti also evaluated the position the opposition has taken so far while underlining the consequences of the ongoing pressure Turkey’s academia has been under, especially after the 2016 coupe attempt.
