On 25 and 26 November 2021, six EESC members took part in the virtual country visit to Cyprus.

The delegation met with civil society organisations (CSOs), social partners and the media on the one hand, and several government and judicial authorities on the other hand. The aim of this report is to faithfully reflect and reproduce the views of civil society. The authorities' views will be set out in their reply to the report.

The above mentioned meetings were framed under the five following themes:

  • Fundamental rights related to social partners
  • Freedom of association and freedom of assembly

  • Non-discrimination
  • The Rule of law

The input received during the meetings has been included in a report drafted by the members of the delegation, this report has been communicated to the Cypriot authorities, who in turn submitted their reply.
