International NGOs Collaborate on Fact-Finding Mission on Media Freedom in Turkey

ImageIn July, KHRP undertook a fact-finding mission to Turkey in conjunction with Article 19, Index on Censorship, the Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales and the Centre for European Studies at the University of Limerick, Ireland.  Its aim was to investigate the current situation with regard to freedom of the media.  During the 8-day mission, the delegates visited Istanbul, Diyarbakır and Batman, and met with a cross-section of representatives from broadcasting, print and online media, as well as with state officials, local lawyers and civil society groups.  In particular, the mission was interested in finding out about the impact of the harmonisation package introduced as part of the EU-Turkey accession negotiations, especially on Kurdish, socialist and Islamist oriented media (reportedly the main targets of violations due to sensitivities to their discussions of the Kurdish question and/ or their socialist/ Islamist agendas).
