A social representations approach to the study of Intergroup Contact can enrich the mainstream work around contact hypothesis originally proposed by Allport (1954) by introducing a more nuanced approach to the way contact and representations are articulated . After situating the Cyprus issue in its historical context I present an analysis of present identity positions, within each community, as perspectives on intergroup relations that canalise the past-present-future transition and discuss how representation of the past can be conceptualised as laying the ground for the emergence of resistance (Duveen,2001)in relation to the potential of contact to lead to the reduction of prejudice and promotion of trust.
