The Turkish constitutional court and civil liberties [0.23 mb]

The Turkish Constitutional Courts verdict annulling the Parliaments amendments to Articles 10 and 42 of the Constitution disregards popular will, legalizes arbitrary restrictions on the right to equal access to education, and erodes the separation of powers by permitting itself to act outside of the legal order.
