The 6th International Conference on Gender Studies will be held in Famagusta, North Cyprus on March 23-24 -25, 2017 by the Center for Women's Studies of the Eastern Mediterranean University. The conference aims at bringing together scholars, researchers, performers and activists from various disciplines such as economics, sociology, psychology, politics, law, communications, education and art to present their works and exchange ideas under the general theme of "Gender, Conflict, War and Peace". This conference will explore the relationship between gender, conflict, violence, war, peace and discuss the relationship of policy, practice and research from multi-dimensional perspectives. Therefore, our conference aims to call attention to the way conflicts and wars escalate the cycle of gender based violence, reproduction and reinforcement of existing hierarchies during wars and explore gendered human equality in war and peacebuilding, gender rules and roles in war, gender perspective during conflicts and post-conflict contexts, gendered implications of displacement and peace, and last but not least, the role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts in peacemaking and peacebuilding.
