MetadataShow full item record
This paper, based on Australian sources, aims to examine the logic behind Australia’s decision to contribute a police unit in the United Nations Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) in 1964. It offers answers to questions such as: What was the first reaction in Canberra to the UN request for troops contribution in the UNFICYP? What were Australia’s major reservations? What were the decisive factors that led to the re-examination of Canberra’s first reaction and its final decision?
