A human rights association in Turkey will begin a series of online courses April 6 focusing on rights violations that occur during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

“We will be discussing issues about human rights during this time when extraordinary measures are being taken with no legal justification—violations become extraordinary in correctional facilities, domestic violence increases and violations reach urgent levels,” The School of Human Rights (IHO) noted. 

The Ankara Bar Association’s Human Rights Center Director, Kerem Altıparmak, and Turkey Human Rights Foundation’s Chair, Şebnem Korur Fincancı, will be holding the first class at 1 p.m. April 6 on IHO’s YouTube channel.

Weekly classes will be available every Monday, IHO noted.
