La Haye, 1899 : la Conférence internationale de la Paix vue par la presse française

Abstract : This paper focuses on the first European pacifism of the late nineteenth century, and more particularly on the Hague Conference of 1899, which took place in a context of armed peace, in which wars, the arms race and the quest for peace were intertwined. The French press covered the entirety of this diplomatic event, from its proposal by Tsar Nicholas II in August 1898, through the progress of the commissions' work, to the results of the conference. Read by millions of French people, it could condition readers' opinions by sharing certain information rather than others. The French press accompanied the movements of opinion by modulating its discourse according to the reactions of its readers and the progress of the Hague Conference of 1899. In a nutshell, the present paper analyses the Hague Conference of 1899 through the French press in order to understand its influence on diplomacy and public opinion at the end of the 19th century.
