Denktash in the South: Normalization of Division in the Greek Cypriot Side

Discourses, even though they seem so different and opposing, can be quite similar and serve for the same purpose. Gregoris Ioannou’s book is a recent contribution to the field. Denktaş Güneyde (Denktaş in the South) is the Turkish translation of Ο Ντενκτάς στον Νότο (O Denktas ston Noto), published in Greek in 2019.

 

Discourses, even though they seem so different and opposing, can be quite similar and serve for the same purpose. Gregoris Ioannou’s book is a recent contribution to the field. Denktaş Güneyde (Denktaş in the South) is the Turkish translation of Ο Ντενκτάς στον Νότο (O Denktas ston Noto), published in Greek in 2019. Rauf Denktaş was a Turkish nationalist, politician and leader of the Turkish Cypriot community for over forty years. He was well-known for his secessionist views, advocating the notion that Turkish and Greek Cypriots cannot live together and hence geographic separation is necessary to prevent the assimilation of the Turkish Cypriot community by the Greek Cypriot majority. Especially after 1974, he constantly followed a policy that there should not be any cooperation between the two communities, but rather a complete separation.
