This article examines how American constitutional experience bears on the Cyprus Problem. The historical evolution of American federalism, from very limited to expansive federal power, may prove instructive. Cyprus should not seek a comprehensive federal solution now, but rather adopt a federalism process, patterned after the Middle East peace process. This would entail whatever limited federal structures both sides can accept now and a structured process for further considerations as trust, experience, and real confidence develop.
