Joseph, Joseph S. (1997) "The next enlargement of the EU: A different view from Cyprus". In: UNSPECIFIED, Seattle, WA. (Unpublished)
Cyprus is at the threshold of the EU, preparing to become a full member and part of the "process of creating an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe." The European Council has repeatedly stated that Cyprus will be included in the next enlargement and accession negotiations will start six months after the completion of the Intergovernmental Conference. The Mediterranean island, however, is still de facto divided and the Cyprus problem unresolved despite the many efforts made by the UN to reach a settlement. This paper argues that the EU, which has repeatedly expressed its concern over the lack of a solution on the island, is now in a unique position to play a role in bringing about permanent peace and stability on Cyprus and in the region.
