Cyprus has undergone a severe economic crisis in the last years with significant repercussions on its society and political system. The study, which will be discussed at the conference and maps the main developments in the social and political fields between 2010 and 2017, comes in a period of relative stabilization which allows a sober assessment of what has happened. The conference can serve as a reference point both for policy makers and the public in discussing what has occurred and opening a critical and reflexive debate on recent developments.
