DescriptionThe Internally Displaced Kurds of Turkey: Ongoing issues of Responsibility, Redress and Resettlement

by Mark Muller and Sharon Linzey

Since early in the 20th century, the position of the Kurds in Turkey has been precarious.  This was particularly so during the 1980s and 1990s when state security forces forcibly evacuated some 3,500 towns and villages in the Kurdish regions of Turkey.  Between 3 and 4 million people became internally displaced during this period. 

Since becoming a candidate for accession to the European Union (EU) in 1999, Turkey has received a greater level of attention from the international community, particularly in relation to its progress towards meeting the standards required for EU membership, including various human rights standards. However, comparatively little attention has been given to the specific issue of the vast number of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Turkey. The Turkish Government has purported to resolve the situation of internally displaced people in Turkey through monetary compensation arrangements and limited programmes for return. These measures have been plagued with legal and practical deficiencies, yet there has been no intergovernmental financial or other support structure designated to assist Turkey in better addressing this massive humanitarian catastrophe.

This report provides an overview and critique of the Turkish Government’s programmes for return, resettlement and redress.  It also addresses the issue of responsibility, both in the context of the EU and the international community more generally.  It further provides a survey of the current and continuing difficulties facing IDPs in Turkey.  The issue of internal displacement remains a critical one for the Kurds in south-east Turkey, the Turkish state, the European Union and the region overall. This report and its recommendations will be essential to all those working for significant change to the benefit of IDPs.
