Andreas Theophanous

Abstract

This article provides ample confirmation that focusing on the intercommunal aspect of the Cyprus problem, as is often the case, is inadequate in understanding and addressing the issue. The author places the Cyprus problem within the context of the post-Cold War regional and international environment and also deals with the historical background of the issue, tracing the policies of Greece and Turkey over Cyprus in the post-1974 period. Furthermore, he addresses recent events and developments and suggests that the content of the solution of the Cyprus problem will critically affect security and cooperation in the island, the Eastern Mediterranean and beyond.
