Başak Can’s book project, on evidence-making and human rights in post-truth Turkey, examines how the processes and products of medical documentation of violence reckon with human rights and humanitarian politics. Drawing from ethnographic research with medical and legal experts in the field of human rights, the project explores the critical relation between evidence, the logic of proof and denial, and post-­violence justice mechanisms.
