Chapter Summary

Cyprus has been a member of the Council of Europe since 1961, and entered the European Union as a divided island in 2004. The EU supports the renewed negotiations between the leaders of Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots, under the auspices of the UN, to reach a comprehensive settlement leading to the re-unification of the island. Although the whole of the island is in the EU, in the areas in which the Government of Cyprus does not exercise effective control, EU legislation is suspended according to Protocol N0. 10 of the Accession Treaty 2003. This chapter presents the relevant provisions of the Constitution of Cyprus of 1960, as amended up to 2006, criminal code of 1962, as amended up to 2006, anti-discrimination laws, and law on combating of racism and other discriminations commissioner 2004.
