of the myth as no more than a hope, not a belief, in what I earlier termed 'a future in the past' ( Zetter 1994:311). This family, I suggest, have not so much replaced the triangular relationships of their former social and cultural world as set about successfully reconstructed two of the three poles; and by accommodating at least some of the requirements of the third-- home/place/space--they can overcome some of the most stressful elements of their refugee dilemma and double identity.

1. The term of the refugee and repatriation in Cyprus is problematic in the strict meaning of these terms in international law. The Greek Cypriots from the north are neither refugees according to the Geneva Convention 1951 and Protocol 1967, since they are not 'outside their country of origin,' nor, for the same reason, can they be considered as potential repatrees. Instead they are technically "internally displaced." The narrow Convention designation of refugee is widely challenged in the literature and the Greek Cypriots certainly exist in what the UNHCR describes as a "refugee-like situation"; they display many of the familiar characeristics of refugee populations ( Zetter 1987; 1991). The term refugee is used, therefore, as a convenient and realistic designation of their social status and identity.
