Examining the Viability of a New Approach to the Cyprus Issue

Harris Georgiades proposes a “stepbystep” negotiation process for the Cyprus Problem, advocating incremental agreements to build trust rather than seeking an immediate comprehensive solution, challenging the current focus on maintaining Greek Cypriot political authority. In his recent book, “The New Realism – The Cyprus Problem 50 years after the Turkish invasion,” Georgiades assesses the past political decisions shaping Cyprus, urging a fresh, realistic negotiation approach that deviates from the entrenched positions of the ruling class and emphasizes incremental agreements for building trust among all parties.
