Ottoman Empire[edit] In the Ottoman Empire, a kaza was originally a "geographical area subject to the legal and administrative jurisdiction of a kadı.[1] With the first Tanzimat reforms of 1839, the administrative duties of the kadı were transferred to a governor (kaymakam), with the kadıs acting as judges of Islamic law.[5] In the Tanzimat era, the kaza became an administrative district with the 1864 Provincial Reform Law, which was implemented over the following decade.[4] A kaza unified the jurisdiction of a governor (kaymakam) appointed by the Ministry of the Interior,[6] a treasurer (chief finance officer), and a judge (kadı) in a single administrative unit.[4] It was part of efforts of the Porte to establish uniform, rational administration across the empire.[4] The kaza was a subdivision of a sanjak[1] and corresponded roughly to a city with its surrounding villages. Kazas, in turn, were divided into nahiyes (governed by müdürs and mütesellims) and villages (karye, governed by muhtars).[6] The 1871 revisions to the administrative law established the nahiye (still governing a müdür), as an intermediate level between the kaza and the village.[6]

Turkey[edit] The early Republic of Turkey continued to use the term kaza until it renamed them ilçe in the 1920s.

Arab countries[edit] The kaza was also formerly a second-level administrative division in Syria, but it is now called a mintaqah. The kaza or qadaa is used to refer to the following: districts of Iraq (second-level, below the governorate) districts of Lebanon (second-level, below the governorate) Sub-districts (third-level, below the governorate and the district) subdistricts of Mandatory Palestine Counties of Israel
