Andrew Arsan : Integration and Intervention. Europe, the Balkans, and the Middle East, c. 1815-2016

How have European statesmen and diplomats sought to resolve recurrent political, economic, humanitarian and financial crises in South-Eastern Europe and the Middle East? And how have they understood the relationship between European order and Middle Eastern disorder in the two centuries since the Congress of Vienna? To answer these questions, we must look to the past, recovering the forgotten connections between collective European responses to debt defaults and refugee flows in the nineteenth-century Eastern Mediterranean and current EU policy on these issues. The origins of contemporary ideas of integration, intervention, and sovereignty, this lecture contends, can be found in the diplomatic crises of the nineteenth century.
