The article presents discussion of the political-ethnic dispute of Cyprus concerning its division in 1974, reviewing the events which contributed to the conflict and suggesting paradigms for its diplomatic resolution. Particular attention is given to the condition of Cypriot politics in relation to Turkey's bids to join the European Union. The author identifies several central problems of the divided Turkish-Greek public administration such as demographic and representational concerns by both parties. Solutions are also given outlining an organizational structure for the reintegration of the administration and establishing paradigms to promote positive ethnic relations in the future.
