European University Cyprus Coordinates The Two-Year Project, Politicization Of Identities In Diaspora: Cosmopolitanism & Conflict Discourses

European University Cyprus coordinates the two-year Project Politicization of Identities in Diaspora: Cosmopolitanism & Conflict Discourses, which is co-funded by national and European funds, under the scheme Restart 2016 – 2020, Excellence Hubs of the Research & Innovation Foundation.


The first Consortium Meeting of the project partners was held on the 9th of January at the European University Cyprus. The project consists of four (4) university partners, the European University Cyprus (Department of Education Sciences) which leads the Project, King’s College London, the Open University of Cyprus and the University of Nicosia.


The Project explores issues of language, communication and identity in Diaspora and aims to examine Greek-Cypriots’ experiences of living in vibrant multicultural cities such as London and New York, as well as the experience of returning back, looking at whether and how the experience of diaspora influences their perceptions of the legacy of conflict in their country of origin.


It focuses on people in a range of different diasporic positions – university students, young professionals, settled families, community stakeholders, and returnees – and it aims to investigate ethnographically the ways in which Greek-Cypriot ‘diasporans’ negotiate representations of their homeland and their ethnic identities in different settings and events, both on- and off-line, especially when the conflict legacy in Cyprus arises as an issue. Finally, the Project will organize capacity building seminars for stakeholders interested in diaspora issues, aiming to promote the significance of diasporic communicative practice for social cohesion and conflict resolution.

For additional information about the PoliDiCo Project please contact the Project Coordinator, Dr. Constadina Charalambous, Assistant Professor, Department of Education Sciences, European University Cyprus, email: 


Call for participation: the University accepts interest in participating in the Project from members of the Cypriot Diaspora in London and repatriates in Cyprus, at the email account:
