On a weekly basis, a stream of information and news reaches us from the Kurdish regions: Bakur (Turkey), Başȗr (Iraq), Rojava (Syria) and Rojhilat (Iran). It is no easy task to categorize, prioritize and present all those messages in a clear and structured way.
Our partner, the ‘Washington Kurdish Institute’ is somewhat successful in this. That is why we would like to refer you to their weekly overview ‘Kurdistan’s Weekly Brief‘. You will also find the most eye-catching news items here beneath.

INTRODUCTION TO FINAL RESOLUTION
We ask the Turkish authorities and the European leaders to do justice to the Kurds in Turkey by acceding to their legitimate demands in order to ensure regional peace and stability, and to consider the fulfilment of those demands to be an essential criterion by which to measure Turkey's progress along the road to membership of the European Union.
