ABSTRACT
This dissertation presents the human rights problem in Turkey and it aims to suggest a new way forward which has not proposed previously. Although Turkey has made several legal reforms related to its prohibition of torture, inhuman and degrading treatment and freedom of expression violations, such violations have continued to pose a problem. Consequent to a comparison of the human rights policies of the United Kingdom and Turkey, this paper suggests that the incorporation the European Convention on Human Rights into Turkish domestic law could be beneficial for the country. The United Kingdom's law is a convincing example of the advantages of incorporating the Convention. The comparison of the legal frameworks, case law and the statistics of the European Court of Human Rights provide an evidence to underpin this thesis. Consequently, the research concentrates on whether the United Kingdom's law can be a guide for Turkey to cope with its human rights law deficiencies.
