dc.description.abstractIn societies in conflict such as Cypriot society, the dominant nationalist political discourse tends to homogenize both sides to the conflict, thus giving rise to ethnic stereotypes and misperceptions. This paper examines and analyzes data from feminist non-governmental organizations who promote inter-ethnic contact, and organize joint projects and conflict resolution workshops. These organizations help parties to overcome the bipolarity of essentialism, of «us» and «them», and the power structures that construct gender relationships in contemporary Cyprus. These efforts gradually construct a shared narrative going beyond divisions, challenge the dominant discourses across the divide, highlight commonalities and differences both intra and inter-communally and work toward a gendered understanding of the conflict and inclusion of women in the peace-building process.en
