The "Cyprus Experience" analyses the constitutional history of Cyprus which constitutes an object of remarkable interest. The major issue concerns the existence of the legal system in Cyprus despite the political difficulties and the events that took place. Focusing on the fact that the legal system of Cyprus does not correspond to the traditional distinction between domestic and international law, the author analyzes the constitutional law issues of Cyprus in this monograph, which is addressed to students, lawyers and citizens who are interested in the interaction between constitutional law and political events.
