Please read this guidance before starting to write. https://www2.le.ac.uk/research-degrees/how-to-apply/research-proposals/law/law Writing the Proposal: A Checklist Your research proposal should be short; around 1000-1500 words is sufficient. In it, you should address the following issues: Define your research question or hypothesis (i.e., what topic are you investigating or what proposition are you seeking to establish?) Explain the rationale for your research proposal – in particular, you need to explain what makes it an original contribution in relation to the existing published works on this subject What methodology will you adopt? (i.e., will you be relying purely on library-based research or do you propose to engage in empirical research?) Include a bibliography of the sources you have consulted in preparing the research proposal Domestic violence is a severe and chronic problem in turkey, despite comprehensive legislative context in turkey, domestic violence is a growing problem. many women have killed raped and battered in 2018. actually turkish criminal code nr 5237 criminalises marital rape and other forms of domestic violence, the violence never ends. my suggestion is that the violence cannot be ended only by the provisions of turkish criminal code number 5237, turkey has a conservative government. due to the reluctance of the government and lack of political will of the turkish government, the turkish criminal system fails to protect women. there is a need for an international mechanism. the istanbul convention is the best solution in tackling violence. the first country who has ratified the convention is turkey but we cannot see its implications in practice. and also there is some opposition. some people claim that the convention is useless and should not be enforced. but in my opinion if the convention enforced properly, domestic violence in turkey could have ended. because in this matter, turkey does not fulfil its obligations at international arena. there is a need for full compliance woth the convention. and my suggestion would be that if turkey fails to take responsibilities in this matter, turkey should be subjected to several sanctions. because this problem can only be overcome with the cooparetion of domestic actors with international actors. police officials are unwilling to protect victims in turkey and prosecutors and courts are not so responsible in domestic violence cases. but if there were many sanctions in this matter, they would be cooperate with victims and fulfil their obligations arising from istanbul convetion.It is obviously a step backward that eight years after its coming into force we are questioning the essence of the Istanbul Convention rather than discussing the shortcomings of its implementation. http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkey-should-stick-to-istanbul-convention-on-violence-against-women-116127 https://m.bianet.org/english/women/157363-istanbul-convention-a-new-hope-for-turkey-to-say-women-without-fear https://www.berjournal.com/tr/an-analysis-on-domestic-violence-against-women-in-turkey-multinomial-logit-model https://dergipark.org.tr/tr/download/article-file/197908 http://www.hips.hacettepe.edu.tr/ING_SUMMARY_REPORT_VAW_2014.pdf http://kadinininsanhaklari.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/sexual-abuse-ankara-99.pdf https://journals.openedition.org/cedref/1138 http://equineteurope.org/2018/12/17/istanbul-convention-preventing-and-combating-violence-against-women/ https://halshs.archives-ouvertes.fr/halshs-01660703/document https://assets.aeaweb.org/asset-server/files/3610.pdf https://www.jstor.org/stable/24781957?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents https://journals.openedition.org/cedref/1138 https://www.opvang.nl/files/PP_Presentatie_van_de_politie_in_Turkije.pdf http://kadinininsanhaklari.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/IDS-TCK-Pinar-makale.pdf
