TRT World is a Turkish public broadcaster which broadcasts in English 24 hours a day and is operated by the TRT and based in the Ulus quarter of Ankara. It provides worldwide news and current affairs focusing on Turkey, Europe, Africa, and Western and Southern Asia. In addition to its headquarters based in Ankara, TRT World has broadcasting centres and studios in Washington, D.C. and London. It is a member of the Association for International Broadcasting.

The network has received criticism for failing to meet accepted journalism ethics and standards for independence and objectivity, with some commentators especially in the West calling it a mouthpiece or propaganda arm of the Erdoğan administration. TRT World claims that it is financially and editorially independent from the administration, and that its news gathering and reporting activities are just like those of other publicly funded broadcasters around the world, with a mission to show a non-Turkish audience events from Turkey’s viewpoint.However, according to Reporters Without Borders, Turkey in 2023 ranked 165th out of 180 countries in press freedom.
