Always Disadvantaged Discrimination Practices in Turkey: Victims and Proffesionals Share Their Stories
Writer: Feray Salman
Issue Date: October 2009
The basic purpose of this publication is to expose how discrimination is inserted into our lives by different ways and means despite the existence of the principle of equality which is prerequisite for human rights and freedoms that we are entitled to by birth and to remind us that to establish much needed social peace, it is necessary to struggle against discrimination in all its forms. This booklet tries to bring into sharp relief the development and practice of discrimination, show how it develops, and give a platform to feelings of those who experience discrimination. We hope this will be a guide to the civil movements that turned their backs on each other and therefore reproduce discrimination.
In this English language version the views of the people presented in this paper which were given in informal interviews have been translated from Turkish and some additional explanations have been given in the footnotes.
