„When searching for an appropriate way to voice our fieldwork experiences I (and my colleagues) felt the dissatisfying gap between writing distant policy recommendations for the EU project and the things we saw along no-man’s land in Nicosia. We all agreed that the appropriate way to voice the situation on Cyprus was by bringing together the lives of people whom we met during our fieldwork in a seminar that we organised in the middle of the geopolitical heart of Cyprus. Here musicians from north and south who had joined together in the Olive Tree Project, children from bicommunal  schools,  NGOs  working  in  common  on  environmental  projects,  academics, architects, and politicians shared their common vision for a peaceful future. The seminar represented an alternative representational space that gave voice to a transformative geopolitics, not only because it created a grounded geopolitical osmosis that incorporated various voices, but also because of ist location in the UN-controlled buffer zone right in the middle of Nicosia.“ (Boedeltje 2011: 517)
