The Post-War Years, 1974–2004

  • Gregory Neocleous
Chapter

Abstract

The events of 1974 left their mark on the contemporary history of Cyprus, affecting the Cypriot people in many ways but essentially by the austerity measures imposed on them in order to save the national economy from collapse. The years following the Turkish military invasion were critical for the future of social insurance in Cyprus. The strength of the fund, however, was demonstrated as it withstood pressure from the high demand for benefits, especially from refugees.
