Migration, Minorities, and Refugeehood in Cyprus.

Demetriou, Olga (2021) 'Migration, Minorities, and Refugeehood in Cyprus.', in Jahrbuch für Europäische Ethnologie. , pp. 91-120. Jahrbuch für Europäische Ethnologie., 15


This article uses displacement as an analytic lens for examining the Cypriot citizenship regime. It seeks to explain how the governance of migration, minorities, and the refugee existence stem from the politics of citizenship. The article first reviews the formation of migrant, minority, and refugee communities on the island and then discusses how minority groups have been governed since independence. It then reviews the displacements induced by the Cyprus conflict and similarly discusses the policies relating to the protection of refugees over the last two decades. From this basis, the article proceeds to analyse the governance of migrant, minority, and refugee groups within the citizenship regime from the perspectives of law and practice, concluding with policy suggestions.
