The third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus lies to the north of Egypt and the south of mainland Turkey. The island has been effectively partitioned since 1974, when Turkish forces invaded the north and declared independence, though no country other than Turkey currently recognises Northern Cyprus as a separate entity. UN human rights mechanisms have been critical of discrimination against children from Turkish and other minority backgrounds as well as inequality and discrimination in access to education.
