The report entitled the ” Outlook of Freedom of Association in Turkey ” is prepared under the Right to Participation Project, which is financed by European Union. The report is based on the targets and indicators set forth in the Guidelines for EU Support to Civil Society in Enlargement Countries10 (2014-2020) published in 2014 by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations.
The report aims to help improve the environment by using the indicators set forth in the Guidelines for identifying problems in legislation and implementation in the area of freedom of association; to induce relevant institutions to produce statistics compliant to international standards, which so far have fallen short of doing so, as well as to encourage official, public and systematic data collection about civil society. The data covering 2018 are basically based on press and media scans, applications for information filed submitted to relevant institutions and official statistics.
