Fighting Human Rights Violations in a Semi-Authoritarian Political System. Human Rights Activism in Turkey and the Human Rights Mechanisms of the Council of Europe and the European Union

Research and Science
Date: Wednesday, 25 April 2018

During recent years, human rights violations have become commonplace in Turkey’s political reality. Nowadays, the human rights activists in Turkey have to face individual threats and encroachments by the state institutions. They have to work in a societal environment, in which their fight for the individual human rights is too often intentionally misinterpreted as “support for terrorist organizations” or as an action against the interests of the Republic of Turkey. Considering these political circumstances, human rights activists in Turkey have to know and understand the protection mechanisms for the human rights given by the European Convention on Human Rights (and its five protocols) and by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. As a founding member of the Council of Europe and an applicant to EU Membership, Turkey is supposed to implement the CoE human rights mechanisms fully and to respect EU regulations likewise. With this program, the participants will get the chance to improve their competence in making use of existing human rights mechanism. They will get the opportunity to report on their human rights activism on the ground to an international/European audience.
