The decline of democracy in Turkey is becoming one of Europe’s biggest challenges. As a home to a large Turkish and Turkish-speaking community, this development has special meaning for Germany. This community is subjected to propaganda that is directed by the government and government-related media. Independent reporting hardly exists anymore. Important whistleblowers and commentators have had to flee.
We want to do something about this. CORRECTIV, together with the former chief of the Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet Can Dündar, intends to establish a Turkish-language journalism center. This center will undertake independent and critical reporting, for both Turkey and the Turkish-speaking community in Germany, while meeting the highest quality standards. The new center will be directed by Can Dündar.
What will the new center look like?
CORRECTIV and Can Dündar are currently developing the concept for the new newsroom. Although there are still a lot of unanswered questions, one thing is already clear: We have to get the center up and running as soon as possible. Turkey needs critical voices now.
That’s why we’re hoping to get as much support as we can.
