KHRP Publishes Annual Impact Report


KHRP is pleased to announce the publication of its Impact Report 2008.

In addition to providing an overview of the human rights situation in the Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and the Caucasus, this annual publication details KHRP’s activities throughout the year, including our human rights litigation and advocacy, training and fellowship programmes, fact-finding missions and trial observations, research and publications, and public awareness campaigns and communication strategies.

The report also reviews the impact of KHRP’s work in 2008 in promoting greater protection of human rights in the Kurdish regions, with a particular focus on political and judicial systems, torture and ill-treatment, freedom of expression and association, cultural and linguistic rights, environmental justice, gender equality, the right to life, and war and instability.

‘As the only human rights NGO working consistently across the Kurdish regions without any political affiliation or agenda, KHRP is uniquely positioned to produce a publication of this kind,’ said KHRP Executive Director Kerim Yıldız. ‘Our Impact Report should be a first port of call for anyone interested in the human rights situation in this part of the world and in the methods by which organisations like KHRP can effect change.’

Impact Report 2008 can be downloaded free of charge from our website here. Printed copies will be available on request in the coming days.
