Closing reception 

Under the auspices of the Embassy of Ireland in Cyprus and PRIO Cyprus Centre, in partnership with UNFICYP, a series of events on “The Role of Civil Society and Gender in Reconciliation – Lessons from the Good Friday Agreement” took place between 22 and 25 September 2018. Professor Monica McWilliams and Dr Avila Kilmurray, both founder members of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition (NIWC), a cross-community political party established to participate in the peace process in Northern Ireland, travelled to Cyprus for a series of engagements with women’s groups and activists, academics, students, and female members of political parties. The programme was funded by Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and it coincided with the twentieth anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. This report details the key messages from the visit, the themes that emerged during discussions, as well as proposals for future events and actions.
