Cyprus and the EU


Cyprus and the EU. Accession talks between Cyprus and the EU will need to come to a conclusion about the future of the current division of Cyprus between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Three scenarios are dealt with in this paper: the continuation of the present situation, namely the absence of a settlement with the entry of the Republic of Cyprus into the EU being imminent; EU membership of a federal, or unitary, Cyprus and finally, a Cyprus confederation within the EU. The paper argues in favour of a confederal solution within the EU. "Cyprus, Which Way? - In Pursuit of a Confederal Solution in Europe", by Nanette Neuwahl, is published by the Jean Monnet Programme.
