Noon Forum Examines “The Cyprus Crisis: ‘A Declassified Dossier" 

WASHINGTON, DC —The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) hosted a Noon Forum on the topic, “The Cyprus Crisis: A Declassified Dossier,” featuring Gregory Graves, an AHIF Graduate fellow and Ph.D. candidate at George Washington University, September 26, 2017. 

In his presentation, Graves expanded upon the thirty-one volumes of research he has conducted on the Cyprus crisis during the past year. The dossier includes compilations of day-to-day declassified documents from the U.S. government and other foreign archives.  Graves indicated that his research will help historians to develop a comprehensive understanding of the Cyprus crisis by providing a chronological dossier of declassified documents. He refrained from introducing his own biases, choosing instead to provide the facts regarding U.S. policy decisions during the crisis, which will allow others to draw their own, more informed opinions. 

“Greg has done exceptional work to uncover the previously classified day-to-day dialogue of the U.S. government during the Cyprus crisis,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said.  “This extensive thirty-one volume set will provide unique insight into the policy decisions of the U.S. government during the Cyprus crisis in July and August of 1974.”
