    Etymology: Ένωσις.


  1. Enosis

    Enosis refers to the movement of the Greek-Cypriot population to incorporate the island of Cyprus into Greece. During the past the same term was used in various times and places to denote movements among Greek populations remaining outside the boundaries of the Kingdom of Greece as originally created in 1830, who aspired to be incorporated in that kingdom. Movements calling for Enosis were popular in Crete, Ionian Islands and Dodecanese, culminating with their achieving their aim and joining Greece. Calls for Enosis among Greeks in Asia Minor ended far more tragically, with these Greeks being expelled en masse at the end of the Greco-Turkish War. In modern times, apart from Cyprus, the call for Enosis is adopted among part of the Greeks living in southern Albania/Northern Epirus.
