History and profile[edit]

Evrensel was founded on 7 June 1995. The issues captured and written are from a socialist perspective. The paper is different from other Turkish newspapers in that it presents an in-depth research into issues surrounding the workers unions.[1] In 2017, newspaper started an English version of news.[2]


Metin Göktepe, the 27-year-old journalist whose death in police custody in 1996 caused public protests and outcry, was on duty as a reporter for Evrensel on the day of his detention and murder.[3][4]
