The application of conflict resolution theories on Turkey's Kurdish conflict and its peacebuilding work
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2011.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. Approaches to resolve Turkey's Kurdish conflict have been overpowered by military operations because the state has framed the conflict as an internal security issue rather than a socio-political issue, and there has been very little effort to apply practical theory to the peacebuilding work of non-state actors. This thesis provides an analysis of how four non-governmental organizations have framed the causes of the conflict and how it should be transformed, particularly focusing on the organizations' own devised resolution documents. The organizations' important concepts and suggestions are examined and evaluated in this paper through the use of key theories from the field of conflict resolution. Exploring the implications of their work using various theories, this research paper fills the gap of demonstrating the limits and strengths of organizations' approaches to resolving the Kurdish conflict in Turkey.
