Inside Turkey provides a multimedia platform for independent journalists and citizen reporters to tell otherwise untold stories on social and political realities at a critical juncture in their country’s history. As the Turkish state’s grip on the media increases, the space for freedom of speech and the discussion of crucial human rights and social issues is shrinking. In this hostile environment – accompanied by growing conservatism – journalists face routine harassment and arrest for simply trying to do their job. Inside Turkey offers a rare opportunity for independent, local voices to report freely on issues of concern such as the refugee crisis, gender equality and the environment.
