Conference: Cyprus Solution - A European Challenge

In cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Cypriots' Voice, a bi-communal initiative, organized a conference to reflect on the current situation in the Cyprus negotiations, how the stalled talks are related to European politics and policy and to formulate policy recommendations.
