Turkey is one of POMED’s focus countries. Our Turkey Program focuses on human rights, governance, and the struggle for democracy. The program, led by Turkey Program Director Merve Tahiroğlu, produces research and analysis, convenes events and discussions, and engages with Washington policymakers and experts to raise awareness of Turkey’s political trajectory and to advocate for U.S. policies that promote a genuinely democratic, rights-respecting Turkey.
