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!

˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
