EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, BRUSSELS – WEDNESDAY 6TH AND THURSDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2017
The EU Turkey Civic Commission (EUTCC) will hold its 14th International Conference on EU Turkey and the Kurds 6-7 December 2017 in the European Parliament.
The theme of the conference is:
ALTERNATIVES TO TYRANNY AND CHAOS IN THE MIDDLE EAST – KURDISH VISION AND STRATEGIES-
We kindly invite you to the Annual International Conference on the EU, Turkey and the Kurds hosted by the EU Turkey Civic Commission (EUTCC) in cooperation with the GUE/NGL Group, the Greens-European Free Alliance and the Groups of the Free Alliance of Socialists and Democrats.
For 14 years, the EUTCC has organised annual international conferences in the European Parliament, focusing on the Kurdish question and democratic processes in Turkey. With invited civil society organizations, academics, European, Turkish and Kurdish politicians, policy-makers and activists – these conferences have received international attention – politically and in the media. We are proud that internationally recognised individuals like Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, Leyla Zana, Shirin Ebadi, Bianca Jagger, and Vedat Turkali support the work of the EUTCC.
The final resolution of each conference has urged the European Union (EU), the United States (US), the international community and all democratic forces to use their political influence to encourage Turkey to find a peaceful, political solution to the Kurdish question.
