Why all this hatred of capitalism?

2013-06-17 05:46:00

Today's Zaman  June 16, 2013 http://www.todayszaman.com/news-318360-why-all-this-hatred-of-capitalism-by-nazila-isgandarova-.html The ongoing socio-political crisis in Turkey shows that some segments of Turkish society are not happy with the Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) so-called “capitalism.”   It is evident from the slogans that they use against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s “AVM project.” What is interesting is that these kinds of anti-capitalist slogans are used in countries, especially in developed countries, when economic crisis pushed people into poverty. However, Turkey is doing a much better job than Europe, with its stable banking system and the creation of new jobs. The question, then, is whether the AKP government supports a conservative ideology. Can we label the Gezi Park protests an example of socialist-conservative tension in Turkish society? First of all, although there are so many things going on in Turkey at the same time, it is too early to label Gezi Park protests a “socialist” movement. Poverty is not a main issue in the protests, but it is used as a tool to blame the government for an unequal distribution of resources. The increasing socio-economic inequality frustrates people, creates fear, anger, paranoia and depression. Furthermore, anti-capitalist slogans at Gezi Park demonstrate the fact that Turkish society remains a more class-aware and collectively-oriented society than many countries in West. Of course, Turkish society does not focus on the class as a central issue; however, we are seeing an increased tendency toward individualism in Turkey and this social development increases worries over issues of economic inequality. Many people who are sensitive to social and economic inequality in society are apprehensive of conservatism, since it sees poor people as “defective,” “abnormal,” and “inf... Devamı

NGOs' expectations of the CSW57 and national governments

2013-03-15 20:15:00

    by Nazila Isgandarova*   A large number of government representatives, senior officials, delegations from NGOs and experts have come from all around the world to New York to attend the 57th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW57), which began on March 4 and ended on March 15.   They discussed and assessed the status of the CSW's work for gender equality and the empowerment of women. The representatives of governments and members of parliaments also shared their experiences and positive practices. However, what was also remarkable was the participation of the NGOs, who questioned their respective governments' legislations and practices, which pushed them further to achieve new and improved legal, socio-economic and political equality of women that drastically helps to eliminate all forms of violence against women. An example of the activism of global and national NGOs during the CSW57 is evident with the statement on March 12 of a number of global and national NGOs titled “Statement of Feminist and Women's Organizations on the Very Alarming Trends in the Negotiations of the Outcome Document of the 57th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women.” The statement was drafted by the Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) and the International Women's Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific (IWRAW Asia Pacific) and endorsed by Amnesty International, ANIS: Institute of Bioethics, Human Rights and Gender in Brazil, the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), the Asia Safe Abortion Partnership, Fiji Women's Rights Movement, Namibia Women's Health Network, Rutgers WPF, Netherland Women's Environment and Development Organization (WEDO), and the Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGN). These remarkable organizations from all around the world have criticized the work of the CSW and expressed their... Devamı

Aynur Sofiyevaya görə Azərbaycanda siyasi məhbus yoxdur

2013-03-08 19:58:00

Tia.Az xəbər verir ki, dünyanın hər tərəfindən hökumət və qeyri-hökumət təşkilatlarının aktiv iştirak  etdiyi toplantıda Azərbaycanı Ailə və Qadın məsələləri üzrə Dövlət Komitəsinin sədr müavini Aynur Sofiyeva təmsil edirdi. CSW57-də Türkiyə nümayəndə heyəti tərəfindən təşkil edilmiş "Hüquqi islahatlar və ən yaxşi tədbirlər" adli toplantıda çıxış edən və Azərbaycan hökumtənin fəaliyyətlərini işıqlandıran xanım Sofiyeva bildirdi ki, Azərbaycandakı qanunlar qadınlara qarşı fiziki və her cür şiddətin qarşısının alınması, qadınların tam hüquqlarının qorunması və onların potensiallarının həyata keçirilməsi üçün tam imkanlar yaradır. Xanım Sofiyevanin çıxışına etirazını bildirən və CSW57-də National Council of Women of Canada-nı təmsil edən Dr. Nazile Isgəndərova Azərbaycanda qadınlara qarşı şiddətin başında Azərbaycan hökumətinin gəldiyini bildirdi. Dr. Isğəndərova Azərbaycanda qadına qarşı şiddətin siyasi, iqtisadi və ictimai səbəblərinin olduğunu göstərərək, bu səbəbləri doğuran və yayan Azərbacyan hökümətinin qeyri-demokratik fəaliyyetini, siyasi müxalifətə qarşı acımasız təzyiq və həbslerini tənqid etdi. Azərbacyan hökümətinin bu günkü mövqeyini müdafiə edən Sofiyeva bildirdi ki, Dr. Isğəndərova ümumi və faktlalara əsaslanmayan bir fikir səsləndirdi. Azerbaycanda siyasi məhbus probleminin olmadığınıvurğulayan Sofiyeva qanunların hami üçün bir olduğunu ifadə etdi: "Əgər Azərbaycanda qadın tutrlubsa, konkret cinayətinə görə tutulub." Sofiyeva əlavə etdi ki, xanım (yəni, Dr. Isgəndərova) azərbaycanlı olmasına rəğmən, erməniler tərəfindən 500000 yaxın fiziki işgəncəyə məruz qalan qadınlardan deyil, olmayan şe... Devamı

Domestic Violence and Human Rights

2013-03-07 22:52:00

    Nazila Isgandarova CSW57 is full of excitements and experiences. I represented National Council of Women of Canada and Canadian Council of Muslim Women. Starting from the first day, I wanted to attend as many workshops and conferences as possible organized by the government and NGO representatives. On March 4, I attended the conference “Legal Reforms and Best Practices,” where the Turkish government together with the Netherlands, UK, and Azerbaijan presented their reports. The government delegations of the Netherlands and UK reported that they see domestic violence as a violation of basic human rights. Hon. Fatma Sahin, Minister of Family and Social Policies of Turkey, reported that how Turkey improved the legal system, and socioeconomic and political protection of battered women. Hon. Fatma Sahin discussed that eliminating and preventing all forms of violence against women and girls necessitates a holistic approach. Therefore, the Turkish government attempts to involve many sectors of the society, including non-governmental organizations, local administrations, the media and the private sector to tackle the violence against women. Ms. Aynur Sofiyeva, deputy minister of State committee on Women and Family Affairs presented her report about the legal practices against domestic violence and the situation of 500, 000 refugee women who were subject of physical and sexual abuse of Armenian soldiers in Karabagh. However, she failed to touch the structural problems in Azerbaijan that breed domestic violence against women by police, and other government institutions. Therefore, I asked Ms. Aynur Sofiyeva to bring clarification on political prisoners, especially female prisoners for their political views and whether the government will create a democratic environment that will eliminate violence against women. However, Ms. Aynur Sofiyeva denied the fact that Azerbaijan has a political prisoner problem. There were questi... Devamı
