Abstrakt

In recent years, UN have been involved in the work for a political reunification of the divided island in the United Republic of Cyprus. The organisation has been actively involved in writing the draft constitution of the republic with the aim of establishing a legal-foundational compromise between the goals of Greek and Turkish Cypriot political leaders respectively. The work has been carried out within the framework of the so-called Annan Plan, which covers aspects from the constitution over the adjustment of the border to the creation of a new flag and national anthem for the suggested united republic. One decisive aspect of the plan has been the decision to have simultaneous referendum in the Greek and Turkish Cypriot areas, which has given the Cypriot population the power to adopt or reject the draft constitution. The referendum did not result in the adoption of the draft constitution and establishment of the republic.
