Report of the International Commission on the Balkan Wars

Report of the International Commission to Inquire into the Causes and Conduct of the Balkan Wars is a document published in the Washington D.C. in 1914 by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

The International Commission to Inquire into the Causes and Conduct of the Balkan Wars consisted of university professors and other prominent individuals from France, Great Britain, United States, Germany, Austria and Russia. Among the members of the Commission there were three Nobel Prize winners.[1]

The Commission went to the Balkans at the beginning of August and remained until the end of September 1913. After returning to Paris all the material was processed and released in the form of detailed report. The report speaks of the numerous violations of international conventions and war crimes committed during the Balkan Wars. The horrifying information collected were published by the Endowment in the early summer of 1914, but were soon overshadowed by the beginning of the First World War.[2]
