KHRP Executive Director and Chair Launch their New Book - The European Union and Turkish Accession


Following a successful preview held on 15 April at the Greater London Authority, KHRP is happy to announce today’s release by Pluto Press of a new book by KHRP’s Executive Director and Chair, Kerim Yildiz and Mark Muller QC.

The EU accession process will shape Turkey’s future and, in particular, its potential to become a pluralistic, democratic state that respects international human rights. In this timely survey, Kerim Yildiz and Mark Muller explain and critically examine the process of accession focusing on both human rights obligations and their implementation in Turkey.  

With a foreword by Prof. Noam Chomsky, The European Union and Turkish Accession addresses the variety of groups in Turkey that are affected by these negotiations. Central to this evaluation is a detailed study of the Kurdish people and their relationship to the Turkish republic. 

Kerim Yildiz & Mark Muller signing copies at the GLA, 15 April 2008

With the recent Turkish incursions into Kurdistan, Iraq and the ongoing human rights abuses occurring in Turkey itself, this book will serve as an essential guide to those interested in the future of Turkey, Europe and the Kurdish people.

Pluto Press will mark the launch of the book with an event at Waterstone’s, 82 Gower St, London, on Thursday 8 May from 6.30pm, where KHRP Executive Director Kerim Yildiz will be signing copies.

The book is now available for £17.99 from KHRP’s online shop.
