Thus, for two years in a row, the Cultural Center of the Caucasus Yezidis submits reports to the UN International Convention about the situation of the Yezidis in the countries of the South Caucasus. The employees of the organization are human rights researchers, speak at various venues and regional forums of the UN on the protection of the rights of national minorities. They participate in various international human rights forums in order to convey to the world community all the problems that the Yezidis have experienced and are still experiencing all over the world.

Also, they discussed the problems of the Yezidi people living both in Iraq and Syria, and in the countries of the former USSR and their immigration. Consequences of the genocide of the Yazidis of 2014, the difficulties that the Yazidis living in IDP camps are still experiencing.
