Against Massacre

This chapter examines the European powers' nonintervention on behalf of the Ottoman Armenians during the period 1886–1909. From the 1870s to 1914, the “Armenian Question” was dragged into the international debate. However, Armenian nationalist leaders wrongly thought that acts of massacre, atrocity, and extermination would convince the European powers to intervene. The chapter first considers the implementation of reforms in the European provinces of the Ottoman Empire prior to the Armenian massacres before discussing the massacres that took place between 1894 and 1909, including those in Sasun and in the province of Adana. It explains why no humanitarian intervention took place after these events and goes on to explore the Third Marquess of Salisbury's last attempt to revive the Concert of Europe. Finally, it analyzes British and French public opinion regarding the Armenian Question.
