Abstract

On 21 July a state of emergency took effect in Turkey and the government submitted a derogation to the Council of Europe in response to the failed coup of 15 July. There is compelling evidence of systemic, arbitrary and indiscriminate violations of the European Convention on Human Rights as part of the government’s ‘Fight against the Fethullah Gülen Terrorist Organisation (FETÖ)’. This article will examine the past approach of the European Court of Human Rights to states of emergency and assess Turkey’s derogation and use of emergency powers against ‘FETÖ’.
