Report of TIHR Turkmenistan. Human rights in the era of the great Renaissance
Photo from Carpet named by Oath of President
It goes without saying that it was premature to expect rapid changes in the human rights field just two years after the death of the Turkmen autocratic leader S. Niyazov, who ruled unchallenged for 21 years. It is extremely difficult to expect quick changes, when Turkmenistan is still being governed by those, who had been closely working with the dictator who died untimely, but at a proper time.

Report of TIHR
On the state of freedom of the mass media, the right to freedom of speech and free access to information in Turkmenistan
The right to freedom of speech and the right to free access to information have never been fully respected in Turkmenistan. Stipulated by the Constitution of Turkmenistan, the aforementioned rights have fallen under the jurisdiction of verbal legislation. Since independence, verbal legislation has prevailed over existing legislation and have enjoyed absolute power. Since Turkmenistan gained independence, the authorities have been systematically turning the mass media into a mechanism of ideological propaganda, depriving them of creative freedom and other freedoms. During this period the editorial boards of newspapers, magazines, radio, television, Internet access, publishing resources of print media and technical facilities of electronic media have been state-controlled. Independent mass media are non-existent in Turkmenistan.
