Despite the emergence of a negotiating culture in Cyprus, neither party has ever been able to reconcile its position, and peacemaking has become an unspoken management of the status quo. The disputants have harvested the indirect resources which they have associated with third‐party involvement, giving the conflict the identity of intractability. This has led outsiders to classify the disputants' inflexible negotiating positions as a product of ethnonationalist sentiment, the socio‐political and historical consciousness of Greeks and Turks, and of geopolitical forces, the implications of which are examined in this article.
