Toxics and Human Rights — A Conversation with Baskut Tuncak, Director of TURI

This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Baskut Tuncak, newly named Director, Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI), at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Baskut is a lawyer and former research chemist with a truly distinguished and fascinating career in a diverse range of public and private sector roles in toxics issues. Baskut most recently served as the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur on toxics and human rights. In our conversation, Baskut explains the role of rapporteur to the UN and outlines for us his goals as Director of TURI, one of three agencies implementing the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Act.
