Civil-Military Relations in Turkey
MetadataShow full metadata
The purpose of this project is twofold: to highlight the basic framework scholars use to analyze civil-military relations, and to use that framework to describe the content of twenty recent scholarly articles that examine civil-military relations in Turkey. The normative literature review derives from traditional civil-military relations literature that also provides background for the conceptual framework. The conceptual framework consists of five descriptive categories: civil-military problematic, civilian control, military professionalism, institutional structures, and challenges. These categories are used for the content analysis of the applied research project. The study uses content analysis of the articles on civil-military relations in Turkey. Descriptive statistics (frequencies and percentage) are used to report the results of the content analysis.
