We are delighted to release the second episode of our new “DialoguePerspectives | Podcast” today!
In our series “(Re-)Shaping Europe”, our participant İrem Çörekçi outlines the conflicts surrounding Turkey’s withdrawal from the İstanbul Convention on the comprehensive protection of women against all forms of violence. She deconstructs the narrative of a “Western” agreement imposed on Turkey by Europe and sheds light on the long struggle of feminist organizations in the country since the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923.
The piece is part of our blog-series “This Is Us – Insights from our Participants”, initiated in November 2020. You can listen to the podcast via Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Buzzsprout. We look forward to your feedback!

˝DialoguePerspectives offers a unique change of perspective! The programme allows you to really grapple with current and highly societally relevant questions, to reflect on your own identity, and to get to know the diversity of European identities. I am very grateful for the intensive personal discussion and encounters, and the great amount of food for thought that has stuck with me long past the seminars.
Ezgi, DialoguePerspectives participant
