Violence and Human Rights


Violence and Human Rights

This book, the 4th publication of our Centre,  consists of both the summary of a report and the talks given during the international conference on “Violence And Human Rights“ organized by the Centre for Research and Application of Human Rights of Maltepe University on April 2, 2012.

This conference is one among a number of activities we carry out in response to a fact that we are confronted with at present. This strange fact is the increase in the efforts to protect human rights and at the same time the increase in blind acts of violence in Turkey and all over the world. Why is violence on the rise?
