Kurdish Human Rights Project


Compte d’auteur

"KHRP's work in bringing cases to the European Court of Human Rights, seeking justice for the victims of human rights violations including torture and extra-judicial killings, has been ground-breaking. In many of these cases the European Court of Human Rights has concluded that the Turkish authorities have violated individual's rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. Amnesty International salutes the work of this organisation over the last 10 years in defending human rights."
Kate Allen, Director Amnesty International UK

"My family is scattered. My father has been killed. My mother is on the run, with no money, no assets, no house, no home. My brothers are not there and I miss them really badly. So what's going to happen to me? I am a complainant of the tyranny done to us. I am a complainant of the state of Turkey. I request the Kurdish Human Rights Project to take my case to all international courts and institutions. I authorise them to act in my name. They talk human rights. I am a human. Where are my rights?"
A Kurdish Applicant before the ECtHR

"For more than a decade after the military coup, governments in Turkey committed the gravest of human rights while blandly denying that the violations were taking place. By pioneering the use of the personal petition to the European Court of Human Rights in Turkey KHRP helped to make those violations a matter of record in the form of court judgments. This has added valuable leverage in the continuing struggle to bring abuses such as 'disappearance', forced displacement, torture and repression of free speech to an end."
Jonathan Sugden, Director Human Rights Watch UK
