Abstract

This was KHRP’s first opportunity to observe a trial such as this. Having led and been involved in fact-finding missions, trainings, and trial observations related to the prosecution of women’s rights defenders in Turkey, KHRP identified the case of Eylem Pesen’s murder as the embodiment of the country’s systemic problem of violence against women; one that would serve as a solid illustrative case to help disseminate knowledge and understanding of Turkey’s obligations, under interna- tional law, to refrain from any form of discrimination against women.
