Solving the Cyprus Problem: thinking outside the box

Thanasis Gavos   Wednesday, 20 June 2018; 6:30-8:00pm
Cyprus issue, LSE

Decades of efforts to solve the Cyprus problem culminated in failure in 2017. The failure highlighted the deeper issues pertaining to the conflict and the inherent problems of the process and methodology followed thereto. If there’s to be a renewed attempt to restart the process with credible prospects for success, taking stock of the past is crucial. This approach critically evaluates the peace process as well as the emerging geopolitical realities in the Eastern Mediterranean and suggests novel and pragmatic ways for moving forward.

Speaker: Dr Harry Tzimitras is Director of the Peace Research Institute Oslo – PRIO Cyprus Centre; Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council Washington, D.C. and Associate Professor of International Law and International Relations; specializing in energy security and geopolitics; Law of the Sea; international conflict resolution; foreign policy and the Eastern Mediterranean, with an extensive publication record and teaching experience and in these areas.

Chair: Dr James Ker-Lindsay is Senior Visiting Fellow at LSEE Research on South Eastern Europe in the LSE European Institute.

Venue: Room 1.11, Cowdray House

Admission: The event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis
