On Saturday 20 March 2021, Turkey did the unthinkable. It was announced that Turkey had withdrawn from a human rights treaty. In a presidential decree, Turkey had declared that it had denounced its obligations from the (hereinafter Convention). The convention is a legally-binding Council of Europe treaty, covering domestic violence and seeking to end legal impunity for perpetrators. It covers 34 European countries and took effect in 2014. It bears the name of a famous Turkish city (Istanbul) which straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Sitting at the epicenter of trade and commerce, one expects the leader of the aforementioned Convention to lead by example.
