American Dreams: The Story of the Cyprus Fulbright Commission

American Dreams: The Story of the Cyprus Fulbright Commission, tells the story of the 52-year run of an independent bicommunal educational institution founded in the hopes that it would help keep Cyprus within the circle of liberal democracies post-independence.

Through the lens of the Commission’s work, it is also a history of American involvement in the island, where strategic interests, Cold War politics, and the idealistic vision of Senator J. William Fulbright came together to form one of the most unique such Commissions in the world.

It is also, in its own way, a history of the island and its people over the past 60-plus years and their efforts to reconcile their very different visions of how Greek and Turkish Cypriots might move forward together into the future.
