|KHRP Releases Two Publications on Human Rights in Turkey|
KHRP is pleased to announce the publication of two new reports on two key human rights issues facing Turkey today– freedom of the media and the situation of internally displaced persons.
In July 2007 KHRP organised a joint mission with BHRC, Index on Censorship and Article 19 to observe the opening of the trial of Hrant Dink’s alleged assassins. Freedom of the Media in Turkey and the Killing of Hrant Dink attempts to outline the background to the killing of Hrant Dink and examines the indictment against the alleged perpetrators as well as claims of State complicity in the murder. The report highlights restrictive legislation that encroaches on the right to free speech in Turkey and the targeting by extremist nationalist groups of academics, writers and journalists prosecuted under such legislation.
The Internally Displaced Kurds of Turkey: Ongoing Issues of Responsibility, Redress and Resettlement provides an overview and critique of the Turkish Government’s programmes for return, resettlement and redress for internally displaced persons (IDPs). 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.
