Abstract

This dissertation analyzes the impact that European Union law has had upon Cyprus law, focusing on the problems that arose after the financial crisis and how EU law can be used as a vehicle for dealing with problems of over-indebtedness. Contract law and civil procedure in Cyprus are only now experiencing major processes of transformation as a result of the financial crisis and the claims that reach courts, despite acceding to the EU 17 years ago. EU accession was initially seen by many as an opportunity for reform and modernization of the legal system, however, in certain areas of the law this was only realized, as a result of the problems caused by over-indebtedness and the lack of specific institutions to deal with such problems.
