The Cyprus Question and the Turkish Position in International Law Summary

The Cyprus Question and the Turkish Position in International Law by Zaim M. Necatigil

The "Cyprus question" has been and remains one of the more intractable problems in world affairs. The question of who should govern the island of Cyprus has provoked a steady stream of publications, most of which have supported the Greek position. Until now the Turkish position has not been well documented. This book sets out the Turkish case, principally from a legal standpoint, but using, in addition to legal material, historical, diplomatic and political sources. The work begins with an account of the recent history of Cyprus and goes on to deal with the international law aspects of the various developments that have taken place since 1963. In particular the author considers the intercommunal hostilities of 1963, the separation of the two communities under different administrations, the "doctrine of necessity", the coup d'etat of 1974, the Treaty of Guarantee and the Turkish intervention of 1974, human rights, the constitutional proposals of each side and the question of future federation for Cyprus. The author then examines the events of the 1980s, beginning with an historical analysis of the proclamation of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in November 1983 and ending with a discussion of the recent "rapprochement" between Greece and Turkey, the presidential elections in the South and the prospects for a federal solution.
