Abstract

In an examination of the origins of compulsory population exchange, this paper studies the concept’s introduction on the international stage during Lausanne Conference of 1922-1923. Using the method of diplomatic history, it analyzes the contributions of Anglo-American diplomats to the formulation of Greek and Turkish Exchange Convention signed on January 30th, 1923. Specific focus is given to American intervention which ensured the exemption of Constantinople (present-day Istanbul) from the population transfer.
