The Platform for Independent Journalism and Freemuse’s joint UPR on Turkey

15 August 2019

The Platform for Independent Journalism and Freemuse calls on Turkey to comply with international human rights instruments on freedom of expression.

 

The Platform for Independent Journalism (P24) through the nationwide network of SUSMA and in cooperation with Freemuse, based on both organisations’ ongoing work of documenting violations of freedom of expression and working with a wide variety of stakeholders advocating for artistic and cultural freedom, welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Third Cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process of Turkey. Our organisations’ focus is on Turkey’s compliance to its commitments under international human rights instruments relating to freedom of expression, creativity and the arts, as well as guarantees under its own Constitution, and to recommendations accepted by Turkey during the first (2010) and second (2015) cycle of the UPR.
