The Gender Advisory Team (GAT) and the PRIO Cyprus Centre cordially invite you to a conference entitled Women’s Peace: Applying UNSCR 1325 to Cyprus and the Region that will take place on 6 December 2012 at Chateau Status in Nicosia's Ledra Palace buffer zone. Gender has been recognized as a critical component of peace-building processes in UN Security Council Resolution 1325 but no significant attempt has yet been made to implement UNSCR 1325 in the peace-building process in Cyprus. This conference highlights concerns around the lack of implementation and invites Cypriot women and men, international experts, and activists from the Middle East and southern Europe to share insights on local concerns and international practice.
