Event description

Description

The Greek communities in Turkey: Past, present and future

Dr Alexis Alexandris
Diplomat and historian, Former Consul General of Greece in Istanbul and Representative of Greece to the UN, Geneva

After the Ottoman conquest of the Byzantine Empire, the Greek Orthodox communities of the Near and Middle East were accorded a certain level of ethno-religious autonomy by their Muslim rulers. With the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923, state policy towards these communities changed. In his lecture, Dr Alexandris will trace the history of the leading Greek communities of the Ottoman Empire and of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople during the transition to republican rule. He will also offer insights into more recent developments in Turkey and their impact on the long term future of the Greek Orthodox community of Istanbul, one of the oldest religious and ethnic minorities in a rapidly changing region.
