GAT consists of women's rights practitioners and academics working on gender in Cyprus, who share a commitment to equality and peace.
GAT is committed to ensuring the participation of women in the peace negotiations and the creation of a polity in which the principles of equality are paramount.
GAT has followed the peace negotiations since 2009 and has produced recommendations to the leaders regarding the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in Cyprus.

Cyprus developments and GAT
In summer 2017, a negotiation summit convened in Crans Montana, Switzerland, was inconclusive. GAT notes the disappointment for this result within a large part of the population on the island. As the future of the peace process remains uncertain, GAT remains committed to the goal of gender equality within a post-agreement federal frame - and more so than ever - towards it.
