Abstract

A Turkish nationalist movement emerged in the Ottoman Empire in the 1860s when Westernized Turks, critical of traditional governing policies and opposed to superficial reforms espoused by the sultans, were forced to flee abroad. Establishing themselves in Paris, by 1902 they acquired the name of Young Turks and divided into two factions. One stood for centralizing the existing Ottoman state under Turkish predominance, the other called for decentralization and full ethnic autonomy for all of the empire’s subjects.
