This literature review focuses on water security
in Turkey over the past years, and it examines three
foreign media articles as well as three domestic media
releases published in English language over a period of six
months, between January and June 2021, to address the
problem of how water crisis in Turkey is framed by the
media under consideration. Following a discussion and a
brief history of water-stress points in the region, including
Turkey, the reviewer will survey the published studies on
this particular topic to identify the criteria for critical
evaluation of all the selected literature under the Vreese’s
journalistic concept of “frame-building”. The synthesis,
then, will highlight factors, like power, interests and
disinterests, that influence the frequency and presence in
building of frames by the selected media communities.
