The União Europeia e a questão turco-cipriota
Aspectos normativos, geopolíticos e migratórios
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, the political administration body of the de facto State located in the eastern portion of the island of Cyprus, presents itself today as one of the key points of the trilateral relationship between Turkey, Cyprus, and the European Union, also serving as an obstacle to the Turkish admission to the European bloc as a Member State. This article, therefore, analyses the normative, geopolitical, and migration aspects of the relations between the three actors based on a bibliographic and documentary research and a qualitative approach. The article is divided into five sections which, in addition to the introduction and final considerations, aim to contextualize Northern Cyprus historically and politically, analyse the geopolitical and regional aspects of Cyprus, and debate the normative issues of the Brussels-Nicosia-Ankara relations. Considering the unprecedented nature of the theme in the Brazilian academia, the results are expected to contribute to new understandings about this important Mediterranean region and its impacts on European and Turkish international relations, in an environment of increasing securitization and geopolitical instabilities.
