The University of Cyprus publishes a series of essays entitled Essays on Social Issues that concern or should concern Cypriot society. The essays aim to provoke public dialogue on a variety of problems and issues that confront modern societies; ultimately, they aspire to encourage state institutions and/or private organizations to act. Each essay is prepared by a member of the academic staff who is well-versed in and highly knowledgeable about the specific essay topic. The essays are based on scholarly research and aim to offer a thorough and multi-dimensional analysis of timely issues. Although a Senate committee, the 'University and Society' Committee', oversees/supervises the preparation of the essays, each essay expresses the opinion of the author, and not that of the University.
