The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies [M.I.G.S.] (Reg. no. 234) is a non-profit organisation which promotes and contributes to projects of social, political, and economic themes relating to gender. In the case of Cyprus, where the institute is based, a gendered perspective and feminist activism comes at a very crucial time to link, prepare, and promote the socio-economic and political ideals necessary for a smoother adjustment to the European Union membership.
