Turkey - State of Emergency Acts Review Commission Used to Hold Off Proper Legal Review

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Reflects on why the State of Emergency Acts Review Commission (Olağanüstü Hal İşlemleri İnceleme Komisyonu) created by Turkey in response to concerns over the lack of mechanisms for challenging the legality of the Government's dismissal of thousands of public officials and its closure of many non-governmental organisations during the state of emergency imposed after the failed coup of 2016 may itself prove to be a delaying tactic harmful to the rule of law and access to a court.
