Our Fellow Utku Çakırözer (2008-2009) was in town attending the annual Global Leadership Forum as an alumni speaker. He spoke about his year as a Fellow and press freedom restrictions in Turkey and around the world.

Uluslararası Eğitim Enstitüsü (IIE) tarafından Washington’da düzenlenen Küresel Liderlik Forumu’nun dünkü oturumunda ‘Basın Özgürlüğü’nü tartıştık. Aralarında çok değişik mesleklerden kamu yöneticileri ve gazetecilerin bulunduğu 100 ülkeden 160 katılımcıya yaptığım konuşmamda Türkiye de dahil olmak üzere dünyanın bir çok yerinde basın özgürlüğünün kısıtlanmasının sonuçlarını anlattım.

Özgür bir basın olmadan, ülkelerimizde demokrasiden ve özgür tartışma ortamından bahsedemeyiz. Bizler ne ülkemizde, ne de dünyanın herhangi bir yerinde gazetecilerin, yazdıkları için hapse atılmasını istemiyoruz. Adaletsizliklere, yolsuzluklara ve tüm suçlara ait gerçeklerin ve bu gerçekleri anlatan haberlerin otoriter yönetimlerce sansür edilmesi uygulaması hiç olmadığı kadar yaygınlaştı. Basını susturmak, halkımızı susturmaktır. Demokrasimiz ve yurttaşlarımızın temel hak ve özgürlükleri için mücadelemizi sürdüreceğiz.. #GlobalLeadershipForum #Washington #HumphreyFellows

General information

The Humphrey Fellowship Program has received funding as a Fulbright exchange activity from the U.S. Congress since 1978. It was named in honor of the late Senator and Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey (1911-1978). A long-time advocate of international cooperation and understanding, Humphrey served as Vice President of the United States from 1965 to 1969 and for many years as a U.S. Senator from Minnesota. President Jimmy Carter announced the establishment of the Humphrey Program on a state visit to Venezuela in March 1978. It would be a program, Carter said, embodying the values shared by the United States and Venezuela -- democracy, social justice and a desire to assist the developing nations of the world. A year after Carter's declaration, the first Humphrey Fellows arrived in the U.S. They were 27 mid-career professionals from 24 countries who would study at 11 U.S. universities and institutions. Since 1978, more than 4,000 Fellows from 157 countries have participated in the program. More than 40 universities have hosted the Fellows for their year of study.
