and intellectuals from both communities have a very crucial role to play today in view of the official impasse. Ongoing research is needed to inform of the changes taking place and translating them into policy suggestions and options for decision makers. The macro level needs to build linkages and maintain contacts with the various non-governmental groups that work for reconciliation. For joint unofficial CR workshops facilitated by local and foreign trainers can demonstrate how this macro-micro cooperative effort in addressing the various domestic aspects of the problem and develop an internal dynamic which can positively influence the external factors involved, i.e., motherlands, and other interested third parties. Such an internal transformation would provide the best guarantee for a mutually accepted process for a lasting political resolution.

The main goal was to work on common projects that were to help rapprochement. These meetings were discontinued for two reasons: Dr. Doob was accused in the conservative Greek Cypriot press of being a CIA agent and the Turkish Cypriot participants were denied permission by the Turkish military and Turkish Cypriot authorities to cross to the buffer zone.
4.
The report in Kelman ( 1984) stresses among other issues (such as lack of trust, mutual fears, joint interest in federation, role of education and leadership) the value of track-two approach to diplomatic negotiations: how joint working groups could meet simultaneously with the formal negotiations.
