Especially from the mid-19th century until mid-20th century, Istria was area of the national conflicts and untolerance between Italians, Croatians, and Slovenians, due to impact of the according national-international processes. Although there were also attempts of the life in harmony and tolerance, dramatic ungoings took place precisely during the struggle of the three nations in Istria for the right of national identity and self-determination. The denying of these rights of national sovereignity in this region was especialy problematic and implicated the conflicts. Beside this crucial inner factor the important role in the inducing of conflicts between three autochtonous nations in Istria and islands of Kvarner in the 19th century, have had some external elements clousely tied with changing dynamics of the international politics. The national unification of Italy and founding of the modern Italian state, the Kingdom of Italy 1861., is the external factor of the politics reality in this area. On the other side the defeath of Austria in the war against Prussia (1866.) and the following change of gravity of its politics, the accession of Italy to the Triple Alliance (1882.), the defeath of the italian collonial army by Adua (1896.), with following turn of its politics towards the Adriatic and Habsburg theritoryes, are the crucial external factors which affected politics of Italy and Habsburg Monarchy, and also on the development of the social, political and national processes in Istria. This paper discusses also the importance of the overall structural elements, like european balance of powers, and also crucial regional equilibrium between Italy and Austria, which indirectly dettermined the faith Croatians, Slovenians, and Italians in the long 19th century. With the analyses of these internal and external elements important for Istrian historic reality, the paper shows the more complete picture of the causes of conflicts in Istria during the second half of the long 19th century, and also the situation in the moment of the beginning Great War in the year 1914.
