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.

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. 

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

The Hellenic Observatory (@HO_LSE)  is internationally recognised as one of the premier research centres on contemporary Greece and Cyprus. It engages in a range of activities, including developing and supporting academic and policy-related research; organisation of conferences, seminars and workshops; academic exchange through visiting fellowships and internships; as well as teaching at the graduate level through LSE's European Institute.
