The All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Turks and Kurds

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Turks and Kurds aims to broaden and deepen the connections between Parliament and these communities in the UK.

The APPG actively promotes the vibrant contribution made by the Turkish and Kurdish communities to the economic, political and cultural life in Britain, while providing a space within Parliament to discuss issues that continue to affect them.

This includes organising delegations to visit the region, meetings for experts and community leaders to brief members on a range of relevant topics, and events to celebrate cultural occasions.

The APPG will be led by its elected officers, with secretariat support from the Centre for Turkey Studies (CEFTUS).

CEFTUS is an independent, non-partisan organisation that seeks to promote informed dialogue on topics impacting Britain’s Turkish and Kurdish speaking communities.
