Cyprus manifests a favourable narrative by projecting an ontological question of security on EU and neighbouring countries: a maritime or EEZ threat to the Republic of Cyprus is also a threat to other countries with vested interests in the region. In theorising Cypriot ontological security, this work examines the implications of being a maritime state has on the Republic of Cyprus’ foreign, defence, and security policies since 2003. Specifically, it takes into consideration insecurity, anxiety, and resilience generated at regional level through Cypriot external relations and contestations over maritime priorities, such as those with the Republic of Turkey, and how, in turn, these shape not only Cypriot national strategy, but how this also contributes to a reformation of EU policy. Out of this examination, another two questions can be raised: (a) how does Cyprus secure its interests as a small maritime power, and (b) how effective are current Cypriot and EU policies in mitigating maritime security crises in the region?
