A Critical Interrogation of the Conflict
Edited by Michális S. Michael and Yücel Vural
Chapter 4: Turkey’s geopolitical vision of Cyprus
In this chapter Moudouros seeks to decode Turkey’s geopolitical vision for Cyprus by examining the geopolitical discourse as a dynamic process which shapes the various aspects of politics, as a whole. A key challenge of this chapter is to identify the conflicting meanings assigned to Cyprus in the geopolitical discourse. The chapter seeks to analyse the change experienced by the Cypriot space in the geopolitical vision of Turkey, but, at the same time, to draw attention to the contradictions present in the process whereby Cyprus shifts from a ‘threatening space’ to a ‘space of normalization’ of Turkish influence.
