“The Future of our Country Matters: Social Actors have their Say”

The Cyprus problem is a long pending problem which constitutes the greatest barrier obstructing the economic and social development of the Cypriot people as a whole. If there is a single common understanding of the Cyprus problem within the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot community, this is the firm conviction that its long pendingness is restricting the country in a state of protracted temporariness. Major developmental undertakings, whether they intend to improve the infrastructure of the country, to develop an integrated city and country planning, to deal on a more sustainable path with the scarce natural resources of the island (e.g. water) or to develop a comprehensive developmental strategy in alignment with the island’s ecological characteristics, remain on paper or are fragmentally, sometimes even controversially implemented.

Indisputably, the persistence of the Cyprus problem and of the dividing line across the country is presenting a major if not the only major obstacle of the developmental dynamics of the island. The relative stable growth course of the two communities’ economies since the 1974 catastrophe has outshined this persuasion. However, the last couple of years’ economic crisis reminds how much this developmental dynamics of a reunified Cyprus is missed and how fragile an economic progress is when in division.

In the past decades countless negotiations waves have not resulted to a breakthrough that could lead to a just, fair and viable solution of the Cyprus problem. This project is giving an effort to address a weakness of previous negotiations rounds: the lack of mobilisation of social actors. Through an inclusive approach it means to mobilise the engagement of social actors, social groups and movements in a democratic discussion process concerning the social and economic requirements of a socially fair and economically sustainable solution.
