Population Exchange in Greek Macedonia

Elisabeth Kontogiorgi

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of Macedonia — its regional boundaries, economy, and population — and the ‘Macedonian Question’. It then considers the factors that made Macedonia a politically sensitive region. Among these were the imminent political and social disintegration of the Ottoman Empire, the rise of nationalism among the Balkan peoples, the irredentist claims of the newly established Balkan states on territories outside their borders (and particularly on Macedonian lands inhabited by their unredeemed brethren), and finally Great Power rivalries in the area.

Keywords:   Macedonia, Macedonian Question, regional boundaries, Ottoman Empire, Balkan states
