‘Reviving Famagusta’ at the LSE
CNA - UK/London 22/02/2014 19:16

Ideas and proposals on reviving Famagusta as well as an evaluation of the challenges and the social repercussions of such an endeavour were discussed during a conference organised at the London School of Economics on Friday afternoon by the university`s Hellenic Observatory and the Contemporary Turkish Studies department.

The conference, entitled ‘Reviving Famagusta: From Ghost Town to Eco-city?’ initially examined the technical aspect of the idea, in terms of planning and also with regard to the proposal to redevelop Famagusta as an eco-city. As the coordinator of the conference, Dr Rebecca Bryant of the Hellenic Observatory said in her introduction, the idea for the timely conference came from a recent poll among Turkish Cypriots conducted by the Famagusta Initiative which showed that 73% of them were supporting the return of the town to its lawful inhabitants.
