International Press Institute launches podcast series from Turkey on press freedom, future of journalism
The International Press Institute (IPI) has launched "Freedom Dialogues: Turkey," a podcast series exploring media freedom issues from the country. Hosted by Duvar English's editor-in-chief Cansu Çamlıbel, the first episode kicked off with a conversation with prominent journalist Kadri Gürsel.
International press groups, including the International Press Institute (IPI), PEN International and Media and Law Studies Association (MLSA), on June 15 urged Turkey to release Kurdish journalist Nedim Türfent from prison ahead of June 21 that marks his 1,500th day behind bars. "We call on Turkish authorities once again to stop this injustice!" they said.
