Side Events

 IIMA, in collaboration with VIDES International, works to promote the importance of protecting human rights, particularly for vulnerable and marginalized groups like women and children. In cooperation with different organizations and Member States, IIMA has worked to organize Side Events during Human Rights Council sessions to highlight specific issues.

On this page, IIMA has provided links to articles on previous Side Events hosted during the Human Rights Council sessions along with flyers used to advertise the event at the United Nations.
