“Setting the wolf to protect the sheep”? The Criminal Justice System in Late Ottoman CreteUC San Diego
2020 This dissertation traces modernization processes in Crete through a case study of Ottoman imperial criminal justice reform. I argue that mid-nineteenth century Ottoman legal reforms, which were in part inspired by legal reform happening in Western Europe, were the main foundation by which Crete as a protectorate of Great Britain, France, Italy, and Russia was able to build a strong gendarmerie and court system when it became autonomous in 1898.
