Turkey’s Ad Hominem Emergency Decrees – Measure or Penalty?

The purpose of these two blog posts is to consider the implications of Turkey’s recent ad hominem emergency decrees under the Turkish Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights (“ECHR”). This first blog post will provide some context and describe the legal operation and practical effect of the emergency decrees. The later post will ask whether the emergency decrees should be characterised as a penalty under the ECHR and also whether they contravene any Turkish constitutional protections.
