'The Kurds in Turkey - EU Accession and Human Rights'

KHRP has arranged a promotional deal with publishers Pluto Press, enabling members and friends to take advantage of a 20% discount on the book 'The Kurds in Turkey - EU accession and Human Rights' by Kerim Yildiz.

With a foreword by Noam Chomsky, this is the most up-to-date critical analysis of the problem faced by the Kurds in Turkey.

Turkey has a long history of human rights abuses against its Kurdish population - a population that stretches into millions. This human rights record is one of the main stumbling blocks in Turkey's efforts to join the EU. The Kurds are denied many basic rights, including the right to learn or broadcast in their own language.

This book provides a comprehensive account of the key issues now facing the Kurds, and the prospects for Turkey joining the EU. Kerim Yildiz outlines the background of the current situation and explores a range of issues including civil, cultural and political rights, minority rights, internal displacement and the international community's obligations regarding Turkey.

Kerim Yildiz is a leading human rights defender and Executive Director of the Kurdish Human Rights Project (KHRP). He has received the Sigrid Rausing Trust's Minority and Indigenous Rights Award for his contribution to protect human rights and promote the rule of law. He is also a board member of other human rights and environmental organisations. KHRP was most recently short listed for the Liberty/Justice/Law Society Human Rights Awards in 2004. Kerim Yildiz is the author of The Kurds in Iraq: The Past, Present, Future (published by Pluto Press, 2004)
