Szulc, Tad

This case study, created for the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, examines the long-running conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. It asks what the moral and political responsibility of the international community would be should the two factions resume their ethnic cleansing practices and fall back into the violent conflicts of the 1960s and 1970s. The case poses the following question to students: What can and should the world community do when belligerents show no signs of reconciliation, despite years of international peacekeeping and mediation efforts?
