Since the beginning of 2015, CIPADH has already organized and is still actively organizing conferences and seminars. By organizing these events, CIPADH has the ability to pursue its main goals, which are the defense of human rights and the promotion of peace. These conferences allow the exchange of information on these issues to a larger audience, as well as the possibility to open up the dialogue on these subjects.
