During the protracted peace negotiations in Lausanne a convention was concluded between the two countries (Turkey/Greece) on 30 January 1923. The convention came into force when it was included in the peace treaty of Lausanne concluded on 24 July 1923. This was the first time that compulsory migration, or – to give it a more honest name – deportation, was legalised under international law.
