This thesis analyses how urban violence is represented in the Turkish media. The media coverage of the “varoş people” and the representation of the reasons of urban violence attributed to the varoş population are considered. Rural-to-urban migration, social polarisation depended on ethnic diversities, relative economic deprivation, and rivalry for the public space is discussed based on the media representation of particular urban outbreaks after the 1990s.
