This paper offers to disentangle the multiple geographies local, regional and global , in which the wall of Nicosia, Cyprus, is inserted. Specifically, while acknowledging its central role in identity-formation among Greek and Turkish Cypriots, it argues that perpetual representations of the Green Line as a site of interethnic or international conflict overshadow its current geopolitical significance as a global frontier of Europe.
Keywords: Colonialism, Official memory, social practice, immigration, activism, ethnic conflict Paolo Gheda
