Abstract

This chapter covers the second case-study in this book. It analyses the evolution of the Turkish official discourse on Syria, specifically regarding an intervention in the framework of responsibility to protect (R2P). In this chapter, discursive differences between Libya and Syria are shown. The chapter explains the increased securitisation of Turkey’s Syria discourse and the use of the R2P’s intervention component. It also assesses the contestations and hegemonic coalitions of this discourse in the political apparatus. Moreover, the chapter describes how identities are (de)constructed in the identity apparatus and logics of equivalence and difference are established in the discourse apparatus. The chapter also states the discourses about refugees and the Security Council. Finally, Turkey’s internal identity problems are discussed.
