Summary
The Cyprus conflict is one of the unresolved and long lasting issues of the international community. The conflict began in the 1950s, erupted violently with bloodshed at the end of 1963, and culminated in 1974 with the interventions of Greece and later Turkey which led to the island's current de facto division as the Greek Cypriot SOUTH and the Turkish Cypriot NORTH. It has been addressed over the past 35 years by dozens of UN Security Council resolutions--which have proved to be futile so far. For a harmonious pluralistic, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic society we have to develop proper conflict resolution mechanisms, and implement policies which should emphasize the peace-building--"human" and "relationship"--elements instead of formalistic, rigid measures of dealing with conflicts between different ethnic groups. For this dissertation, approximately 60 people ranging from President, former chief of staff, foreign minister, to members of the parliament, ambassadors and academicians in South and North of Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, UK and Belgium (the EU Commission and the Parliament) were interviewed. The interview data is used together with archival data (government statements, UN documents, daily news etc.) to analyze the inter-communal negotiations between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides. Game-theoretic models are used in this dissertation to explain the positions/preferences of the disputed parties and the context of the negotiations. In addition, game theoretic models are complemented with individual level decision making theory (cognitive theory) in order to comprehend a more complete picture of the conflict. It is indeed the survey of the elites, through which this research has identified the respective parties, attitudes, values and beliefs that helped us understand the preference orderings of the leaders of the two sides. Hence, this research demonstrates that pre-negotiation, negotiation (actual bargaining) and the desired step towards resolution of the conflict require a comprehensive evaluation of the issues through a combination of detailed decision analysis and game theory. It is the comprehensive approach of bargaining (pre-negotiation and negotiation), game theory and decision theory used in this dissertation, as well as the quality of the first hand information that came from interviews with the elites that make this study unique in contributing to the literature
