ABSTRACT

"There is an increasing dependence on Russian, Caspian and Middle Eastern oil and natural gas by Europe and the United States. Turkey is geographically in the middle of these consumer and producer countries and has an important place in its emerging role as an energy hub because of pipelines that exist, are planned, or are already under construction. Turkey has agreements with Russia, Iran, Iraq, Qatar, Syria, and Europe in regards to energy Due to these agreements; Turkey is building a web of energy to diversify its energy supply. Some observers think that Turkey is establishing its own dependence, and some think that Turkey's attempts at an energy web are about interdependence rather than dependence in advantage of its energy security. The objective of this thesis is to analyze how Turkey's energy policy with the aim of becoming an energy hub affects its own and the region's dependence or interdependence in regards to energy security."
