Against Massacre

This chapter examines the concept and practice of humanitarian intervention and nonintervention during the Eastern crisis of 1875–1878, with a particular focus on the insurrection in Bosnia and Herzegovina and on the events of the Bulgarian atrocities, also known as the “Bulgarian horrors.” It first provides a background on the 1875 revolt in Bosnia and Herzegovina before discussing British foreign policy regarding the massacres in Rumelia. It then considers British leader William E. Gladstone's views on the question of military intervention on grounds of humanity, the National Conference held in London in 1876 to tackle the Eastern Question, and the motives for intervention in the campaigners' discourse. It also analyzes the negotiations of the December 1876 Conference of Constantinople and the breakout of the Russo-Turkish War in 1877. Finally, it looks at the Congress of Berlin, held on June 13, 1878, to address a number of territorial questions.

Keywords:   humanitarian intervention, Eastern crisis, insurrection, Bosnia and Herzegovina, massacre, Rumelia, Conference of Constantinople, Russo-Turkish War, Congress of Berlin, nonintervention
