dc.description.abstractThe conflict in Cyprus is long-lasting, thus it is experienced differently by younger and older people. All generations define Cyprus, Nicosia specifically, and its division, both internally and through their actions. It has created the many layers and narratives that are present today in Nicosia. The borderland is a space under negotiation by not only geopolitical actors, but (increasingly) by economic, municipal, religious and civilian actors as well. The borderland is also where young people make decisions about their behaviour in urban space. This thesis builds on the need that in the borderland of the UN Buffer Zone, placemaking and moving behaviour are to be studied in a context of a visual and non-visual presence of the Cypriot conflict.
