BBC World Questions comes to Cyprus

As Europe confronts a host of challenges, perhaps hope can be provided from its last divided city. Leaders of both the Greek Cypriot community and the Turkish Cypriot community claim progress is being made,  can a real solution at last be found to the 'Cyprus Problem'?  In an edition from the UN Buffer Zone, Jonathan Dimbleby hears from leaders, thinkers and an audience from both communities about the challenges and opportunities facing the island, and what they mean for Cyprus, Turkey and Europe. 

In this Cyprus edition of World Questions the BBC’s Jonathan Dimbleby invites members of the public to put questions about Cyprus and Europe to an expert panel from across the island of Cyprus. Be part of that audience and have your say in a debate that will be heard around the world.

Simply join the audience or be part of the debate at 18.00 on Tuesday 28 June at Chateau Status, Nicosia. Your question, which you can write and submit at the reception prior to the recording, may be one of 10 selected for the members of the panel to answer.

Panelists

On the panel: Averof Neophytou, leader of DISY – the governing party of the Republic of Cyprus; Meltem Onurkan Samani, Advisor to the Turkish Cypriot Leadership; Christiana Erotokritou, DIKO, Republic of Cyprus MP;  Jan Techau, Director of Brussels-based research institute Carnegie Europe and Niyazi Kizilyurek, Professor of Political History at The University of Cyprus.
