The research unit “Balkan, Ottoman and Post-Ottoman Studies” of KENI (Research Center for Modern History) succeeds “Ottoman, Colonial and Post-Colonial Studies” unit, which has focused its research on the history of Cyprus during three different periods (Ottoman, British-Colonial, and Independence) with main objectives the study of communal conflict and nationalism during the above-mentioned different frameworks, as well as the comparative study of Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot literature on the Cyprus question through the application of colonial and post-colonial studies approaches.

The aim of BOPS is to continue this research activity, but also to expand its frame of reference to the wider Ottoman and Balkan region and its research actions to the Balkan and Late Ottoman political, economic, social and cultural history, with an emphasis on the multiple transformations which signify the transition of Balkan societies to the modern era and the development of the relations of the region’s countries between them but also within the wider European and Global framework during the Late Ottoman and Post-Ottoman period”.
