Cyprus Conflict and Bicommunal Peacebuilding Symposium -2007
On April 18, 2007, CRI hosted a public forum chaired by Dr. Fisher, The Cyprus Conflict and Bicommunal Peacebuilding Efforts, which brought together experts on the Cyprus conflict for a public discussion. Harry Anastasiou (Portland State University) began the workshop with a presentation outlining the history of the Cyprus conflict from inception to the current time, Benjamin Broome (Arizona State University) then led a discussion on an overview of bicommunal efforts from 1990-2006, followed by Michael Donahue (Critical Mass Leadership, Denver) outlined an example of current bicommunal work in his organization's youth leadership camp. Diana Chigas (Collaborative for Development Action, Cambridge) closed the panel by discussing how to evaluate the variety of peacebuilding programs. The forum was followed by a wine and cheese reception. The public forum was followed by a two-day workshop on April 19-20, attended by 19 invited experts on the Cyprus Conflict.
