This chapter examines the politics of European powers' military intervention in Ottoman Greece during the period 1821–1833. It first considers the international and local context of the European powers' intervention in Ottoman Greece before discussing the European governments' nonintervention on behalf of Muslim civilian populations of Greece and of Christian civilian populations at Smyrna (Izmir) and Chios. It then explores how the British and French Philhellenes addressed the question of intervention on behalf of the Greeks and goes on to explain how various massacres that did not lead to a humanitarian intervention and other events eventually triggered the Battle of Navarino in 1827. It also describes the occupation of the Morea, first by Egypt and then by France. It argues that humanitarian as well as self- and collective interests converged to make the intervention at Ottoman Greece possible.
