Résumé
This paper aims to investigate political economy factors which affect environmental degradation in Turkey. The investigation is based on environmental sociology theories and through assumptions of theories, I test validity of these theories for Turkey. The theories that I test are the environmental Kuznets curve, ecological modernization, treadmill of production and destruction, ecologically unequal exchange, and political economy of urbanization. I use time-series data for Turkey covering the period 1970-2010 and in order to see relationship between the effect of economic development, export density to developed countries, urbanization rate, military expenditure and the ecological footprint per capita of Turkey. I employ Johansen cointegration technique. There is a statistically significant and positive relation between economic development, urbanization with ecological footprint, and there is no evidence for ecologically unequal exchange theory, the environmental Kuznets curve and militarization.
