The Cyprus peace process[1] refers to negotiations and plans aimed at resolving the Cyprus dispute. The peace efforts had begun already prior to the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, followed by ceasefire arrangements and a prolonged peace process, which has lasted for more than four decades and is yet to be finalised.[2]

There are two major approaches to resolve the Cyprus dispute: the reunification of Cyprus into a single state and the two-state solution, which would basically legalise the current status quo where Greek Cypriots govern the southern part of the island while the Turkish-occupied areas with a now-Turkic majority are governed by their own Turkic Cypriot government.
