The paper also looks at the pressure being imposed on Turkey by various human rights organizations and some of the factors motivating Turkey to try and improve its record on human rights.
From the Paper:"Few people can think of Turkey without calling to mind the 1978 movie, Midnight Express. In the film, a misguided (and foolhardy) American is arrested by Turkish authorities after he is found attempting to smuggle drugs out of the country. What follows is a (supposedly true) story of the atrocious torture he faced in the depths of a Turkish prison. To be sure, the story was hardly farfetched. Turkey has had a horrific human rights record throughout modern history especially after the seating of the infamous Ataturk. Indeed, one can find evidence of virtually every human rights violation imaginable in modern Turkey, for, although the country seems to be genuinely attempting to "clean up its act", it still has a long way to go."
