(Re-)Shaping Europe: Episode 2 – "We don't want to die!" Reflections on the Turkish withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention
Show Notes

In this episode of the DialoguePerspectives | Podcast, our participant İrem Çörekçi outlines the conflicts surrounding Turkey's withdrawal from the İstanbul Convention on the comprehensive protection of women against all forms of violence. She deconstructs the narrative of a "Western" agreement imposed on Turkey by Europe and sheds light on the long struggle of feminist organizations in the country since the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923. The piece is part of our blog-series “This Is Us – Insights from our Participants”, initiated in November 2020.
