This study examines the place of the Cyprus civil service as a social group in the larger society of Cyprus. It is not a study of the bureaucracy as such but of the civil servants themselves. It tries to find answers to questions such as: What kind of civil servants are they? What are- their goals? How cohesive a group dc they form? Do they have the same socio-economic background? What are their capacities? Why they were attracted to the civil service? What is their status and prestige and what was it used to be before? What are their loyalties? By answering these questions an attempt is made to identify the Cyprus civil servants and to check if they are as a group a modernizing segment of the Cyprus society. The discussion is based on the results of a research undertaken by the author. he research covers two main areas. First, the historical background of the Cyprus bureaucracy, which is expected to influence the attitudes of the Cypriot civil servants. Second, this thesis is concerned with the self-perceptions of the Cypriot civil servants. Data for the historical background were collected from the conventional bibliographical readings, while the data used for the present situation of the civil servants were collected from the responses of the civil servants to a comprehensive questionnaire.This study examines the place of the Cyprus civil service as a social group in the larger society of Cyprus.
