The Kurdish problem, print media, and democratic consolidation in Turkey


  • Emre Toros



This study investigated the link between press and democratic consolidation in Turkey. It was assumed that plural structures in the sense of diversity of the news, approaches, responses, and ideological positions would be contributive to democratic consolidation. Accordingly, this article searched the patterns of diversity and plurality among the print media news between the years of 1984 and 2008. The article proved that the Turkish press responded in a plural manner to the selected case. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012
