As a non-profit, non-governmental organization, the AHDR relies on the support of its members and a number of donor institutions to pursue its mission. By working together with both local and international partners, the AHDR has been able to benefit from the knowledge, experience and expertise of others, whilst also contributing its own unique perspective to joint endeavors. The Association is grateful to all those who have contributed to the AHDR in support of its vision and aims.


 The AHDR’s partners include:

  • History Educators International research Network (HEIRNET). In cooperation with the Historical Association [HA] of Great Britain, the AHDR organized the 10th International HEIRNET Conference in Cyprus on 14th to 16th September 2013. 
  • Teacher Trade Unions: The AHDR’s inter-communal educational discussions, seminars, workshops and projects have been organised in collaboration with the teacher trade unions across Cyprus who have been long standing supporters of the work of the Association. 
  • The Elders and the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) were both partners in the development of the AHDR’s supplementary educational material:  Thinking Historically about Missing Persons. The prestige of former world leaders (who include: Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Mary Robinson, Gro Brundtland and Jimmy Carter amongst others) who are part of the Elders, as well as the international expertise of ICTJ were invaluable to this joint project, which resulted in the production of the first ever teaching materials on missing persons from both an international and local perspective.
  • The Committee for the Missing Persons (an official body established in partnership between the Turkish Cypriot Community and Greek Cypriot Community authorities, under the auspices of the United Nations, to conduct exhumations of missing persons from the Cyprus conflict) and the organizations who represent families of the victims from both communities greatly supported the efforts of the AHDR in the development of the educational material: Thinking Historically about Missing Persons.
  • Together with the Cyprus Community Media Center (CCMC), the AHDR has developed various communications products such as short videos, which have enabled the AHDR to reach a much wider audience.
  • The AHDR is a member of EUROCLIO, Europe’s leading network of history teachers associations. In 2007 and 2008, the AHDR and EUROCLIO ran a series of teacher trainings in Cyprus, and EUROCLIO continues to act as a key venue for AHDR to disseminate its products and expertise on a European level.
  • For its research studies, the AHDR has partnered with the Oxford Center for the Study of Intergroup Conflict, which has enabled the pioneering work of AHDR to be shared more broadly within global academia.
  • Within the Multiperspectivity and Intercultural Dialogue in Education (MIDE) project, the AHDR developed a series of supplementary educational materials in partnership with the International Children’s Film Festival of Cyprus (ICFFCY), the International Centre for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), and the Elders Foundation
  • The AHDR works with a range of other partners to provide professional development opportunities for Cypriot educators: Kenyon College in the United States has been a partner of AHDR since 2008. The EU Grundtvig Program has supported exchanges between Cypriot educators and their European counterparts.  Under the Lifelong Education Programme of the European Commission, the AHDR became part of a consortium of teacher training centres from Spain, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Greece and Lithuania. 
  • In 2007, the AHDR was the local partner of a project implemented by the Centre for Democracy and Reconciliation in South Eastern Europe (CDRSEE) titled History Teacher Training Project.  Supported by UNDP-ACT, it resulted in the production of a set of supplementary educational materials, ‘Alternative Southeast European History Material,’ in the Turkish language. A seminar and workshops for Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot educators was held in October 2008, followed by the dissemination of the materials. 

During the inauguration festivities of the Home for Cooperation, AHDR organized a series of activities with a range of Cypriot non-governmental organizations. A total of 15 organizations (Peace Players Cyprus, Rooftop Theater, Hands Across the Divide, POST Research Institute, Youth for Exchange and Understanding, ENGAGE, Cyprus Network for Youth Development, European Mediterranean Arts Association, Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts, House of Literature Oslo, CCMC, Future Worlds Center, Greek Cypriot & Turkish Cypriot Teachers Platform United Cyprus, the Bicommunal Choir, and the International Children’s Film Festival of Cyprus) all participated in this collaborative event.

Other activities and events has also seen the AHDR partner with the following:  The United Nations Forces in Cyprus (UNFICYP) Cyprus Chamber of Commerce, Youth Power, Synthesis, Center for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development (SeeD), Cyprus Island Wide NGO Development Platform (CYINDEP) and  International Cities of Peace.
