Event description
Turkey: Collapse of the Rule of Law

About this Event

IDs will be required at the entrance. This event will be monitored by Columbia University security. No video or audio recording will be permitted.

Once one of the most promising countries of its region, Turkey has become an elected autocracy. Amid an unprecedented purge, the rule of law has collapsed. Turkey is now among the most repressive countries in its region. The deterioration of human rights and the destruction of democratic institutions in a critically located NATO ally will have important and negative implications for the world.

The Human Rights Foundation, in partnership with Columbia University Global Freedom of Expression, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute, and the International Commission of Jurists are bringing together top experts on the situation in Turkey to discuss the collapse of the rule of law and the instability of the country.

The evening will feature a panel discussion with Steven Cook, Senior Turkey Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Sarah Cleveland, Professor, Columbia Law School, member of Venice Commission of the Council of Europe, and Commissioner, International Commission of Jurists, Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary, or Arbitrary Executions, Amrit Singh, Director of Accountability, Liberty, and Transparency at the Open Society Justice Initiative and Dr. Alp Aslandogan, President of the Alliance for Shared Values.
