CARDET, in cooperation with the Cyprus Women's Lobby, organized a Panel Discussion within the framework of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence and International Human Rights Day. The event was held in December 10, 2010 at the Cultural Workshop Agion Omologiton and its subject was: Structures of Violence: Defining the Intersection of Militarism and Violence against Women.

The keynote speaker was Dr Rada Boric, Executive Director of the Center for Women's Studies, Zagreb (Croatia) and Executive Member of the Board, European Women's Lobby. This event aimed to question current perceptions of peace within democratic societies by considering whether 'genuine security' is truly achieved in light of persistent human rights violations against women.
