Legal Aid Office for the Victims of Rape and Sexual Harassment in Custody

Legal Aid Office for the Victims of Rape and Sexual Harassment in Custody is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organisation which was founded by Eren Keskin and German Lawyer Jutta Hermans in 1997 in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Office provides free legal support to women victims/survivors including displaced and refugee women, sex workers, transvestites, transsexuals, politically active girls and women who experience state violence, rape and harassment in custody. In this specific area, our organisation is very well known domestically and internationally because of being a centre of first recourse. Our organisation conducts research and delivers projects on issues related to gender, displacement, refugees, children, state violence and justice. The Legal Aid Office for the Victims of Rape and Sexual Harassment in Custody has been part of many International projects on issues related to gender. We also work with the office of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.  

Besides providing legal assistance, our office links our community to relevant organisations for psychological assistance and social assistance.
