About Sapienta Special Reports

Sapienta Special Reports come in two formats: Cyprus Insights (launched) and Cyprus Backgrounders (forthcoming).

Cyprus Insights

Cyprus Insights are primarily events-led briefings aimed at professionals who need to report back quickly to their head offices or capitals about significant new developments in Cyprus. Cyprus Insights are 2-3 pages, text-only briefings under the headings listed below*. They are intended primarily as an add-on for subscribers to the monthly, in-depth Sapienta Country Analysis Cyprus but may also be purchased as a standalone subscription. Subscribers may also make suggestions for topics (see below). Reports are written by Fiona Mullen, a Cyprus-based analyst who has been providing independent analysis on Cyprus to international and local audiences for over 25 years.

Standard sections of events-led Cyprus Insights*

  • What is happening?
  • Why is it significant?
  • Further details
  • What to expect: scenarios
  • Impact on security/international relations/financial stability (as appropriate).

*In the event that the Cyprus Insight is a background briefing, the same headings will be followed to the maximum extent possible.
