Home » Posts » BHRC Event: A conversation with Nadia Murad – Yazidi ISIS survivor

Nadia Murad Basee Taha is a courageous Yazidi woman and survivor of ISIS. She is visiting the UK to share her personal story and raise awareness of the plight of the Yazidi people. She is campaigning on behalf of the 3,500 Yazidi  women and girls who are still prisoners of ISIS and has been nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize for her bravery.

Nadia will be speaking about genocide, the enslavement of women, human trafficking and the recruitment of children into conflict. She will also talk about her recent visit to the UN Security Council and explain what she thinks the international community should do in response to these extreme human rights violations.
