The water and peace Nexus: insights via a global media analysis and a historical analysis of the Syria-Turkey friendship Dam

Master program titleMSc Innovation, Human Development, and Sustainability
Defense date2021
Abstract

This MSc thesis is based on work and research carried out by the author during an internship at the Geneva Water Hub. The Geneva Water Hub works to enable water to be used as an instrument of peace. Two main projects are presented in this thesis: (1) The Water Diplomat media data project, and (2) hydropolitical and hydrodiplomatic research on the Syria-Turkey Friendship Dam. The Water Diplomat project documents the development, construction, and analysis of a database of hydrodiplomacy media, contributing to the Geneva Water Hub's Global Observatory on Water and Peace. The research study of the Syria-Turkey Friendship Dam aims to understand the (hydro)political and (hydro)diplomatic variables that can lead to the establishment of so-called “friendship dams” and to begin to understand what purpose such dams play in the context of transboundary water cooperation. This work aims to be a first steppingstone towards a conceptual understanding of “friendship dams”.
