The paper provides the context – the Cyprus conflict, Turkey’s EU accession negotiations, and the Cyprus reunification talks – in understanding the reasons behind Turkey’s boycott of the Cyprus presidency of the Council of the EU, and evaluate the consequences of such a boycott against the backdrop of the institutional changes brought about by the Lisbon Treaty.
