In 2004 Cyprus joined the European Union. An ever present challenge at that time was the increasing number of elderly people in the Cypriot population. The numbers involved were dramatic. Since the social insurance system in Cyprus affects mainly the elderly population through the pension scheme, it was decided that the book also focuses not only on the labour movement which initiated the campaign for social insurance but also on the campaigns of the elderly movement towards the improvement of the social insurance system in the country.
