State of the Art Report of the Internet in Turkey- 2015

Dedicated to the memory of Özgür Uçkan, whom we lost in 2015; he was a founding member of our Association and a devoted defender of rights and freedoms on Internet…

As Alternatif Bilişim Derneği (Alternative Informatics Association) we have prepared “State of the Art Report on the Internet in Turkey” under seven different titles. In 2015 it can be concluded that the freedom of expression was prevented generally on new media environments either using technical restrictions or through legal mechanisms as a part of state’s ideological apparatus. We feel new topics must be inserted to the report namely media activism, trolling and cyber bullying, free software in Turkey and digital arts.

Here are the subtitles:

MEDIA ACTIVISM, CITIZEN JOURNALISM, ALTERNATIVE AND INDEPENDENT MEDIA

DIGITAL SURVEILLANCE AT INTERNET ENVIRONMENT

HATE SPEECH AND DISCRIMINATIVE DISCOURSE AT INTERNET ENVIRONMENT

TROLLING AND CYBER BULLYING

FREE SOFTWARE IN TURKEY

ONLINE ART PRACTICES IN TURKEY

MEDIA LITERACY AND NEW MEDIA LITERACY

We would like to thank to our members who contributed to the report as volunteers: Aslı Telli Aydemir, Fulya Çalışkan, Gülüm Şener, Melih Kırlıdoğ, Mutlu Binark, Sinan Aşçı and Zeynep Özarslan. The report has been prepared, edited and compiled collectively.

We wish 2016 to be a year during which right to access information and freedom of expression would be protected and improved; to be a year that hate speech and discriminative discourse would turn into peace discourse; to be a year of distributed rights, commons and collective productions.
