Titled "A More Just World is Possible," the book is Erdoğan's first book, and includes details about Turkey's reforms to join the European Union (EU) that presumably furthered human rights in the country.
The president encourages readers to be defenders of justice and of human conscience, even though Turkey is often said to have suffered from a severe decline in human rights and freedoms under the AKP rule, and now ranks near the bottom of most critical freedom indexes.
