From repressing digital content to repressing people


Gohdes, Anita (2016). From repressing digital content to repressing people. Internet Policy Review:online.

Abstract

Turkey's strategy of repressing opposing voices in the aftermath of the failed coup of 15 July 2016 has transformed from surveilling perceived enemies and repressing specific digital content to arresting and silencing anyone who has been classified as a threat to Erdoğan's position of power. The ruling party's willingness and ability to rapidly produce lists of individuals and institutions deemed threatening to the country's political stability should not come as a surprise.
