Abstract [en]

This study examines the challenges and opportunities for freedom of expression online in Turkey. A qualitative content analysis has been carried out, using annual country reports from Freedom House and the European Union. The analysis is informed by Evgeny Morozov’s theory of internet control. This framework outlines two dimensions to internet control: the technological dimension and the sociopolitical dimension. The results indicates that Turkey's regime exerts a strong control over the Internet through censorship, blocked websites, non-transparent regulatory bodies and violations of user rights. The overall most prominent threat for freedom of expression online in Turkey is the establishment of law number 5651. Various possible solutions to the identified threat are also discussed in the study.
