Aside from being George Clooney’s fiancé, Amal Alamuddin is a human rights barrister and campaigner with an agenda to set.
Case in point: today she met with Foreign Secretary William Hague and UNICEF UK campaigners to discuss an end to the rape and abuse of children in war zones before the Global Summit on the subject in June.
“Under international law, the widespread or systematic rape of children in conflict zones can amount to a crime against humanity,” said Alamuddin. “Those who carry out these horrific acts must be held accountable. UNICEF knows from its experience on the ground that sexual violence against children often goes unreported as children fear stigma and retribution or because robust processes do not exist to collect evidence. We need to ensure there are systems in place that will enable child survivors to come forward and access the justice they deserve.”
