dc.description.abstract The Kurdish Question, long an issue of debate in the Turkish public, became one of the prevalent points of discussion following the Justice and Development Party’s (AK Party) rise to power. The aim of this study is to do a content analysis of speeches by AK Party deputies in parliamentary sessions that contain the word “Kürt” between 2001, the founding year of AK Party, and the end of 2017. The study will also scrutinize the claims of AK Party’s “swing to a more nationalistic tone”, taking into account the opinion pieces, news articles etc. that were published in the given period. The change that was observed in the approach of AK Party deputies to the Kurdish Question, in context and ideology, will be thoroughly analyzed. The upshot of these analysis’ will present the turning points in AK Party’s handling of the issue in context and ideology on a yearly scale and will define periods that represent the paradigm shifts. The upshot of this thesis, based on TBMM minutes, indicate that statements that were made in the parliament by AK Party deputies became security-centric over the years, displaying that AK Party moved to a more nationalistic position on the Kurdish question. en_US
