The overall purpose of this study is to explore human rights ramifications in the recent context of Turkey, the forced migration journeys of intellectuals from the country after the failed coup attempt in 2016, their experiences of seeking legal status, and other immigration issues in Europe and the USA focusing on integration and adaptation issues. As a qualitative research conducted through interviews, this paper analyzes implementation of international human rights laws in Turkey by scrutinizing the political practices and their influences on the targeted individuals/groups particularly after the 2016 coup attempt. The findings in this paper will help researchers studying this specific era in Turkey’s historical context in terms of human rights obtain a comprehensive insight through lived and shared experiences of persecuted people.
