Nicosia Uncut - Episode 3: The paradox of Cyprus: Criticising racism internationally, but being xenophobic locally (5/6/2020)
/

In this episode of Nicosia Uncut, Andromachi Sophocleous and Kemal Baykalli discuss the mainstream xenophobic rhetoric in Cyprus within the framework of global movements against extremism.

Such double standards can be observed on both sides of the divide, yet there is some hope when the younger generations stand up against hypocrisy, xenophobia and extremism. It is particularly hopeful to observe when members of each community embrace self-criticism as a tool for progress and mutual understanding.
