The Research Centre for Gender Studies is as an Interdisciplinary research centre under the aegis of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Education and the Faculty of Humanities. The Research Centre aims to conduct research, intervene and produce new knowledge as well as theoretical frames of respect and promotion of diversity in an environment of equality in the social, economic, political and scientific sector, in addition to unfolding the questioning and political frames in the issue of gender. Therefore, it undertakes research activities in relation to Gender Equality with special emphasis on issues related to the rights and participation of both genders in all aspects of human activity, scientific, economic, political, social and cultural. At the same time, it supports the exposure of male and female students of the University Cyprus in the social, political and ideological issues with which the experience of the gendered subject is interwoven and it collaborates closely with the new interdisciplinary, interdepartmental minor programme in Gender Studies offered by the University of Cyprus, as well as with the UNESCO Chair in Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment at the University of Cyprus.
