This short booklet presents summaries of seven case studies, and resulting findings, that form an integral component of INTRAC’s research project on the role of civil society in building trust and reconciliation in Cyprus.
The project is part of an EU-funded programme which aims to strengthen “the role of civil society in the Turkish Cypriot Community and to promote the development of a conducive environment for the further development of trust, dialogue, co-operation and closer relationship between the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot communities as an important step towards a solution to the Cyprus problem”. The INTRAC project builds on previous work in 2006–08 through the Cypriot Civil Society Strengthening Programme that brought together civil society workers from both sides in common activities.
The overall aim of the research project is to strengthen the process of reconciliation in Cyprus by enhancing the role played by civil society. The specific objective is to develop a greater understanding of this role so that stakeholders, civil society organisations CSOs, civil society support organisations, those involved in policy development, and government and funders, including international bodies, can carry out that role more effectively in the future.
