ACTIVITIES

Fact-checking

We are actively using media tools to provide correct information on Turkey to national and international public. The Center strives to ensure that news with objective and solid ground that will also challenge the dominant media figures who have monopolized the political, social, cultural and economic representation of Turkey circulate in the media.

Establishing coordination and networking

We organize workshops, conferences, panels and meetings to bring representatives of the media and non-governmental organizations in and/or outside Turkey, politicians, bureaucrats, academics, businesspeople and artists with the purpose of finding solutions to national and international political, social, cultural and economic problems.

Lobbying

Our Projects

Fact-Checking Turkey

Fact-checking Turkey monitors the factual accuracy of various news and claims about Turkey. Every single minute, loads of information is produced on the Internet and quickly spread through social media. We believe it is crucially important to check whether such news and claims are true. To do this, Fact-checking Turkey follows international and national media and aims to provide accurate information through publicly available sources.

Timeline Turkey

There are currently 12 categories: Kurdish society, Alevis, Muslims, Diplomacy, Women, People with Disabilities, Non-Muslims, Romani Society, Refugees, Health, Youth and Culture & Politics. Reforms for each category are presented through a timeline. The website is available also in French, Arabic, German and Russian.


Chronicles of Shame

Chronicles of Shame displays examples of discrimination, racism and Islamophobia from all over the world.



Crackdown Chronicles

What you will see here is a collection of human rights violations by the United States and European countries. Despite their efforts to portray themselves as a consistent democratic whole, the United States and European countries have their own inner political contradictions. In strict contrast to the ‘rule of law’, theymonitor and censor the media; protesters are often met with police violence; and people are arbitrarily designated as terror suspects under extensive terror laws and their rights are violated.
