KHRP is pleased to announce the publication of its Impact Report 2009.
In addition to providing an overview of the human rights situation in the Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and the Caucasus, this annual publication details KHRP’s activities throughout the year, including our human rights litigation and advocacy, training and fellowship programmes, fact-finding missions and trial observations, research and publications, and public awareness campaigns and communication strategies.
The report also reviews the impact of KHRP’s work in 2009 in promoting greater protection of human rights in the Kurdish regions, with a particular focus on political and judicial systems, torture and ill-treatment, freedom of expression and association, cultural and linguistic rights, environmental justice, gender equality, the right to life, and war and instability.
’As the only international human rights NGO that is committed to working consistently and without any political affiliation or agenda across the Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and the Caucasus, KHRP has an invaluable and nuanced understanding of the most pressing human rights issues and developments in this part of the world,’ said KHRP Chief Executive Kerim Yıldız. ‘For this reason, our Impact Report should be viewed as a primary resource for anyone interested in human rights and in the methods by which organisations like KHRP can influence justice, equality and the rule of law in this region and elsewhere.’
Impact Report 2009 can be downloaded free of charge from our website.
