March Books 14) The Cyprus Conflict: Looking Ahead, edited by Ahmet Sözen
This is a collection of papers from a 2007 conference in Famagusta; I am one of the contributors (though on Kosovo and Macedonia rather than Cyprus). The standout papers are by Nathalie Tocci, reviewing the EU's role in failing to reach a solution up to 2004 and since; Georg Ziegler of the European Commission, which I'm sure he would rush to assert contains nothing new but does pull together the crucial EU documents and policies; and Maria Hadjipavlou, analysing how the opening of the Green Line in 2002 has affected perceptions - not always positively. Some of the material is now out of date because of the renewed talks process. Two of the contributors, Alexander Lordos and Erol Kaymak, have in fact just finished a new opinion poll which will be published in the next couple of weeks.
