This thesis analyses the Armenian Question and the situation of Armenians between the years, 1914-1918, through basing on the news published in Takvim-i Vekayi during this period. These years when the dislocation of Armenians occured had been the turning point in the Armenian Question. Because the events occuring during the dislocation have been represented as genocide and today, this claim is one of the important question for Turkey. Takvim-i Vekayi, as being the first official newspaper of the Ottoman Empire, includes the significant news relating to the dislocation. So it is important to study the Armenian Question between 1914-1918 according to Takvim-i Vekayi. This thesis not only represents the news on laws, provisional laws and regulations about the dislocation but also gives information about the social, political, economic, legal and religious situations of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire during the years, 1914-1918. . .

Keywords: Takvim-i Vekayi, Armenians, Armenian Question, Dislocation.
