|Name||Turkey's Implementation of Pro-EU Reforms: Fact-Finding Mission Report|
This Fact-Finding Mission report analyses the extent to which the seven packages of pro-EU reforms or Harmonisation Packages have been implemented. The report, which concentrates geographically on Diyarbakir, Mardin, Derik and Batman, has a special focus on the legal, economic and social situation of Kurdish women.
The report was written by fact-finding mission members Margaret Owen and KHRP Legal Officer Anke Stock, and details evidence that serious human rights violations including torture and sexual violation in detention continue to occur in the region, and that Kurdish women and children are particularly vulnerable.
Concerns are raised over the appalling physical and sexual degradation of women and girls, including the failure to investigate the horrific crime of honour killings and a lack of protection from the threat of domestic violence.
The report also depicts the situation of abject destitution which governs Kurdish lives in Turkey's southeast, as well as the failure of the Turkish government to implement adequate return programmes for Turkey's 3 million internally displaced and problems relating to the effectiveness of judicial and language reforms
