RSC BLOG: Facebook ethics, Atatürk and the Kurdish movement (Armenian Version)

Dr. Haykak Arshamyan

8 February 2016 

In the latest RSC BLOG, entitled, “Facebook ethics, Atatürk and the Kurdish movement,” Dr. Haykak Arshamyan authored an Armenian-language assessment of the challenges of censorship by the Facebook social network regarding posts that deal with controversial issues in Turkey. Arshamyan exposes the “open collaboration” between Facebook and the Turkish authorities, and reveals a trend whereby Facebook “runs a pro-Turkish policy, thereby violating the freedoms and rights of millions of citizens living in Turkey.” He argues that “we can only conclude that there is…. a violation of free speech rights of Turkish citizens.”
