HELLENIC OBSERVATORY, LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS
ASSOCIATION FOR CYPRIOT, GREEK & TURKISH AFFAIRS
Presented a seminar on
THE SECURITY DIMENSIONS OF A CYPRUS SETTLEMENT
Dr James Ker-Lindsay, IAA Defence Analysis, Institute Senior Research Fellow, Hellenic Observatory, EuropeanInstitute, London School of Economics and Political Science.
Dr Zenon Stavrinides in the chair
Abstract: As direct high-level talks continue between the Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, there is one aspect of the settlement process that necessarily requires the active participation of external actors: security. This talk examined a range of security questions and issues that need to be tackled, such as demilitarisation, the presence of foreign troops, the Treaty of Guarantee, peacekeeping and ensuring the post-solution defence of Cyprus. The talk was followed by a discussion with participants at the seminar.
London School of Economics, European Institute, Cowdray House.
