Abstract

Cyprus is a divided island as a result of nationalist conflict between the Greek-Cypriot and the Turkish-Cypriot communities, which lived apart from 1974 until 2003. Using narrative analysis this paper examines how social interactions outside Cyprus influence ethno-national identity learning of young Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot adults.

The Role of Social Interactions in Learning Ethno-National IdentityThe Case of the Divided Island of Cyprus

Cyprus is a divided island as a result of nationalist conflict between the Greek-Cypriot and the Turkish-Cypriot communities, which lived apart from 1974 until 2003. Using narrative analysis this paper examines how social interactions outside Cyprus influence ethno-national identity learning of young Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot adults.
