Development of Terrorism in Turkey: Focusing on the Periodic Features and Key Actors
There have been recently observed a series of small and big scale of terrorist incidents in Turkey. This study focuses on the time period from the 1961 constitutional amendment that led to enlargement of political freedom which triggered terrorist attacks between the left and right wing groups up to the present-day terrorist incidents occurred in Turkey. Terrorism in Turkey developed from ideological conflicts between left and right-wing in 1970s, PKK and Kurdish Hezbollah in 1980s to the emergence of IS since 2015. Each period carried different purposes, nature and features of terrorism. However, regardless of different time scopes, the key issues in the development process of Turkey’s terrorism were largely related to Kurdish factor: Kurdish separatist movements and their independence.
