GFS 304 Divided Cities in Cyprus

This course explores three themes related to the peace and conflict resolution on the divided island of Cyprus: Division, governance, and reconciliation. Together, we will explore the historical context of the conflict and the impact of its legacy on daily life, the various proposals to address the grievances of the different communities, including the various proposals from the UN and the EU to govern the Island. To counter the narrative of division, the course examines the various points that bring the different communities together out of the necessity of inhabiting “shared space,” visiting practitioner organizations on the ground that work toward peace and reconciliation through grassroots initiatives and public health outreach. (Special travel fee applies.)

Prerequisite: Minimum of junior standing, application required.
