The crackdown on human rights defenders and civil society continues in Turkey despite the end of the state of emergency in July 2018. It was first declared in July 2016 after the violent coup attempt that left over 240 people dead and thousands injured. Since then the Turkish government issued over 30 executive decrees that bypassed parliamentary and judicial scrutiny. More than 100,000 people faced criminal investigation and over 50,000 people remain in pre-trial detention. Those include human rights defenders, academics, journalists, lawyers, politicians and former public officials, who were allegedly connected to the group that was behind the coup attempt.

In this talk, we will discuss what it takes to be a human rights defender in Turkey during this post-coup crackdown. While talking about the specific risks faced, including judicial harassment, arbitrary detention and police violence, insights will be given into the political context in Turkey, focusing on issues such as judicial independence, repressive anti-terror laws, censorship, military operations and curfews in the south-east of Turkey, as well as gender and LGBTI+ rights.

All Welcome!
