Description
Summary:The three-member Commission of Mosul that Count Pál Teleki was also a member as a geographer, created by the League of Nations to study the scope of the former Ottoman Mosul Vilayet’s affiliation, in 1924. The area was desired both by Turkey and the Iraq Kingdom (under British tutelage), primarily in it’s hypothetical oil-rich, as well as economically important railway lines. Despite the Commission did not have the opportunity to scientific inquiry for oil, they examinated historical, ethnographical, geographical and geopolitical facts and principles. The scientific work’s results, mainly led by Pál Teleki, are calculated in terms of methodology unequaled on the global stage. The Commission drew attention to this area for it’s ethnic (Kurdish, Arabic, Turkish) and religious conflicts, and it’s geographical and geopolitical importance. The Commission’s Report built on scientific foundations, though a serious diplomatic and military conflict emerged during it’s work. Finally, The League of Nations and the Hague International Court of Justice going against it’s own principles, ignored the proposal calling for the establishment of the Commission's minority law (1925) and decided on the basis of economic criteria.
