This conference in Istanbul aims to bring together various experiences from around the region with a comparative civic/human rights perspective. It intends to focus on the question of what it means to be “free” after the revolution, and try to understand the current dynamics that shape the very basis of a social contract in respective countries. This is an important task, given that for the first time since the modern state-building experiences people of the region now have the chance to develop a common vision on issues pertaining to democratic citizenship, based on their will and internal dynamics in a mutually learning environment. The program offers one speaker on each country/region to discuss these constitutional issues.
