Abstract

On March 1, 2010, the Strasbourg Court delivered its decision in Demopoulos v Turkey. With this judgment, the Court allowed the building of what could be consideredto be a transitionaljustice mechanism for the settlement of the property aspect of the Cyprus issue. Thus, it influenced the fragile balance in the current negotiations for the reunfIcation of Cyprus. This article analyses this landmark judgment by tracing the reasoning of the Court to earlier case law on issues arisingfrom the Cyprus dispute, discussing the discrepancies between the ECIHR judgment in Demopoulos and the EC.J decision in Apostolides v Orams, and referring to the political ramUlcations of the decision.
