Report

Republic of Turkey joined Council of Europe on 9 August 1949 and is one of the oldest members. The Council of Europe has a well-established large-scale country-specific co-operation in Turkey mainly in the field of rule of law and fundamental freedoms. However, the country has been facing some major challenges in the past years, especially in the field of human rights and freedoms, including the overall protection of the rights of LGBTI persons.

Kaos GL, SPoD and ERA – LGBTI Equal Rights Association for Western Balkans and Turkey submitted this Report on the Implementation of Committee of Ministers' Recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 on measures to combat discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity in Turkey, with the purpose of providing necessary information to the Council of Europe on the position of LGBTI rights in Turkey.
