Languages of publication



This text focuses on the approach of the Ottoman Empire to the occupation of Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1878–1879. The author follows the approach of the High Ports toward individual stages of its evolution, including talks between the Austria-Hungary Empire and the Ottoman Empire, which began in spring 1878, negotiations at the Berlin Congress and also negotiations made between both countries, leading to the conclusion of a Convention specifying the details of the occupation. Attention is also given to the Ottoman approach to the uprising in Bosnia and Herzegovina that erupted as a result of the Austria-Hungary occupation, as well as to the consequences of the occupation affecting the further development of the relations between both countries. The author concludes that, in 1878, the Ottoman Empire – due to its internal weakness and international isolation – was unable to keep Bosnia and Herzegovina.
