AMSTERDAM – Some 35 Dutch experts in the area of emancipation are going to support Turkey in promoting equal rights for men and women in the country. The European Union has put aside EUR 1.7 million for the project. The Ministry of Social Affairs announced this today. The ministry will lead the project, which will run until October 2008.

Equal treatment for men and women is one of the requirements the European Commission has set for Turkish accession to the EU. Equal rights must be anchored in the law. An Equal Treatment Committee must also be appointed. Other plans include a documentation centre and a national action plan for emancipation.
