Governing Together

Governing Together

The Greek Revolt and the Eastern Question, 1823–32

(p.142) Chapter Five Governing Together
Power in Concert

This chapter shows how, by constituting the Greek revolt as a public, European problem, the great powers kept their own competition at bay. The chapter is organized as follows. The first section summarizes the relationship between the Ottoman Empire and Europe from the eighteenth century to the early nineteenth to establish the Eastern Question as a distinct issue. The second section narrates the “Interlude” from 1823 to 1826, when consensus on the Greek revolt broke down as it became de-linked from the “liberal revolution” frame. The third section turns from chronology to analysis. It traces great power diplomacy from 1827 to 1832, showing how the Treaty of London kept the Russo-Turkish War of 1828–29 limited, which allowed the London Conference on Grecian Affairs, a consultation mechanism established in that treaty, to hammer out the details of the new Greek state.
