ISCI is a cross-disciplinary research centre working to further our understanding of state crime: organisational deviance violating human rights

2012 at Hafıza Merkezi

Upon its establishment in November 2011, Hafıza Merkezi started to work on enforced disappearances, or what is commonly known in Turkey as “disappearances under custody.”

Based on discussions with victims and rights organisations they identified the need to: document crimes, put an end to impunity by contributing to justice initiatives; and overcome social indifference and the lack of information among the public on the issue.
