Domestic Politics and the Search for a Solution of the Cyprus Problem
This chapter addresses issues of Greek-Cypriot domestic politics and the search for a solution of the Cyprus problem. Because of its geographic location and consequent strategic importance, Cyprus has had the unfortunate distinction of being a classic example of the interplay of domestic and international politics,1 in what in essence is a domestic problem involving the political aspirations and the power-sharing conceptions of two ethnic communities. The international factor remains an important element in the search for a just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem.
