Article by International State Crime Initiative - 'Death of a peace process: martial law returns to Turkey'
11 September 2015
Turkey has placed the Kurds and their struggle for human rights within a state of exception – outside the protections of due process of law – argues QMUL’s International State Crime Initiative team in 'Death of a peace process: martial law returns to Turkey' on Open Democracy. “The message Erdogan is sending is clear – the peace process is over, the Kurds are once again Turkey’s greatest threat, and only a strong man leading a strong state can protect the Turkish population from Kurdish political violence. The attack on the Kurdish mayors and other civilian leaders is a powerful message of intent to all Kurds," the article reads.
