madde14.org database was first launched in May 2010 in Turkish as a personal project. The English section has started in 2013. The website is still financed individually while Amnesty International Turkey Section, Association for Solidarity with Refugees and Turkey Coodination for Refugee Rights kindly provide documents. And Ms. M.J.W. provides -almost- perfect coffee.
madde14.org aims to provide entry level information to activists and interested individuals and create an easy-to-find database on natonal legislation and reports for researchers and academics.
