The South Tirol Dispute

  • Elisabeth Barker


The South Tirol dispute was one of the most troublesome problems that faced successive Austrian governments between 1945 and 1969. It divided two countries which, in post-1945 Europe, should naturally have been on good and friendly terms. There were times when the Italian and Austrian governments were both anxious to end it; but internal politics, especially in Italy, made it particularly difficult to achieve a compromise which would not be denounced as betrayal by the more nationalist elements on the two sides, above all in South Tirol itself.
