Lecture on Press Freedom in Turkey

Urios will host a lecture on press freedom in Turkey on Monday the 8th of February. Time: 19.30 till 21.00. Location: Janskerkhof 2-3, room 0.21.

After the victory of the political party of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the discussion of press freedom in Turkey has returned. Many journalists are in prison and many journalists are arrested, even foreign journalists. A very good example is Dutch journalist Frederike Geerdink, who was arrested several times in relation to her stories on the Turkish/Kurdish relationship.

The panel of speakers consists of:
– Froukje Santing
Journalist, islamologist and former correspondent in Turkey for NRC/NOS/Wereldomroep.

– Egbert Myjer
Expert on human rights, former judge at the European Court of Human Rights and emeritus professor
