Our colleagues are happy to help you!

Dutch human rights policy priorities:

  • Freedom of expression, internet freedom and independent journalism
  • Freedom of religion and belief
  • Equal rights for women and girls
  • Protection of human rights defenders
  • Equal rights for LGBTI people worldwide
  • Promotion of the international rule of law and the fight against impunity.
To this end, the Dutch embassy in Ankara and the consulate-general in Istanbul offer funding to organisations which promote human rights and the rule of law in Türkiye.
