Truth Justice Memory Center Activity Report (2017-2018)
In the Activity Report 2015-16, we made the following observation: “… remaining afloat became the primary goal of the Hafıza Merkezi just like many other civil society organizations. In this vein, Hafıza Merkezi placed more weight on strengthening its institutional identity, organizational structure and democratic constitution. Improving national and international solidarity and collaborations also gained greater importance.” In this report, we looked not only at how to remain afloat, but also at what we could add to our eight years of experience, and at what should be our priority within the changing political environment. Despite all the changing conditions, however, our main aim remained the same: To bring to light the truth about gross human rights violations, to support victims in their quest for justice, and to contribute to peace and democracy by strengthening the collective memory regarding such violations.
