Europeanisation and Conflict Resolution: The Case of Cyprus

Tuesday July 23, 2013, from 11:00 to 13:00
Room Fred Halliday - IBEI (1st Floor)
Research seminar
George Kyris (London School of Economics)

This paper investigates the example of Cyprus as a case-study for the Europeanisation of conflict resolution. The argument advanced is that European integration impacts the positions of the parts of the conflict (here, Greek-Cypriots, Turkish-Cypriots and Turkey) but not always towards the resolution of the dispute. With a lot of the debate focusing on the pre-accession period of Cyprus, this research concentrates more on the role of the EU in the conflict during the post-accession years and amidst new developments, like the economic crisis or the deteriorating EU-Turkey relations. Research draws on a variety of empirical material, including a series of interviews with EU and local elites.
