Project



Despite the existing interest for the history of the relations between Serbia and Turkey and Russia, there is hardly any systematic study of the Serbian-Turkish relations when the principality of Serbia gained its independence in 1878. Serbia and the Ottoman Empire were keeping an eye on each other. Their foreign interests were the cohesion ground for their cautious rapprochement. For instance, both states were discussing the projects of treaties, which might be signed in the forthcoming years.
The research is supposed to show the crucial role of the imperial legacy for the violent Twentieth century in South East Europe. Therefore it analyses the factor of Ottoman Serbs in Macedonia and Bosnia, as well as in other states of the region and follows up on their imprint on the bilateral and multilateral relations of many post-Ottoman or more general post-Imperial states.
It therefore asks for the rapprochement of the Serbia and the Ottoman Empire and tries to reveal the value the Serbian-Turkish relations during the Balkan wars, and up to World War I.
