Amal Clooney at the United Nations with Nadia Murad UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking 16.09.2016


Amal Clooney speaks  at the United Nations as former ISIS sex slave Nadia Murad who became a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.

Amal Clooney  speaks at the audience and offers her support to Nadia Murad Basee Taha .

I am ashamed as a supporter of the UN that States are failing to prevent or even to punish genocide because they find that their own interests get in the way.

I am ashamed as a lawyer that there is no justice being done and mereley a complain being made about it.

I am ashamed as a woman that girls like Nadia can have their bodies sold and used as battlefields.

I am ashamed as a human being that we ignore their cries for help”.

From United Nations press information

Nobel Peace Prize nominee Nadia Murad Basee Taha – who survived trafficking at the hands of ISIL (Da’esh) – was formally appointed UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking. This designation marks the first time a survivor of atrocities is bestowed with this distinction. Ms. Murad, a 23-year-old Yazidi woman, briefed the Security Council in its first-ever session on human trafficking last December. She described being rounded up with fellow Yazidis in Iraq in 2014 and witnessing ISIL fighters shooting men and boys in cold blood. She was subject to grave abuses at the hands of ISIL fighters and was bought and sold various times.
At the induction ceremony in New York, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recognized Nadia’s resolve to serve as a voice for the voiceless, noting that “Nadia survived horrific crimes. I cried when I heard her story. But I didn’t only cry out of sadness. I was also moved to tears because Nadia has so much strength, courage, and dignity. She rightly calls for a world where all children live in peace.”
For his part, UNODC Executive Director, Yury Fedotov, said: “Nadia’s appointment as a UNODC Goodwill Ambassador, provides a unique opportunity to urge others to join us in our fight against human trafficking. We know that Nadia’s extraordinary commitment to the plight of trafficking victims will move people to take action against this scourge.”

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is the lead UN entity fighting all forms of human trafficking, including sexual slavery, forced labour, child soldiering and trafficking for the purpose of organ removal. UNODC is the custodian of the UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children and mandated to manage the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. UNODC works with governments, NGOs, the private sector, foundations, the arts and media community, academia and think tanks to combat human trafficking by raising public awareness, supporting survivors, engaging in preventative efforts and enhancing the capacity and skills of criminal justice professionals and policymakers.

As UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking, Nadia’s main goals is to focus on advocacy initiatives and to raise awareness around the plight of millions of victims of trafficking, especially refugees, women, and girls. She has also been asked to speak at the opening of the United Nations Summit for Refugees and Migrants to be held on 19 September.

  1. I really appreciate that Amal is working on this case. I think that she uses her clothing to attract the attention of the media to her cases. It seems to me that more people are interested in fashion than women’s rights, unfortunately.


    • You are on Amal Alamuddin Style not CNN or Al Jazeera. Fashion has it’s place and Amal has been showing poor judgement on her wardrobe choices of late. I hate to say it but it does look like she’s too concerned about her designer clothing, whether gifted or loaned with compensation.
      Of course, she could be buying all of these frocks but somehow I doubt it.
      As far as her speech at the UN, I loved it. That should be the focus and I’m afraid that while she expressed excellent talking points and a phenomenal catch phrase, she has come across as attention mongering, unfortunately.
      Nadia is the star. My heart aches for her and the thousands living their lives in slavery.
      Style aside, Amal has afforded this horrendous issue publicity and that’s highly commendable.
      I hope, in all sincerity, that something can come of it. I’m not optimistic, however, alas.


  2. This women can not take a bad picture. From these images with Nadia, she seems to be a very loving and caring individual – and she looks great🙂


  3. I haven’t been commenting on the last post bc I believe everyone has a rare misstep but she is completely ill dressed for the role she is playing. She’s looking like a fashion model rather than a competent lawyer focusing on serious issues. She can dress however she wants in private and off duty but for this sort of event she would be better served in a professional suit keeping the focus on the issues.


  4. Amal is: exceedingly hard-working, extremely ambitious and unbelievably image-conscious. Throughout her years at Oxford and her tenure st S&C, she was known as a militant work horse. She was clocking in unbelievable billable hours. She’s smart – she knows ‘exactly’ what she’s wearing – it’s not a misstep. She realizes that she will be overshadowing Nadia – that’s irrelevant. She has to be the center of attention herself regardless of the focus, cause or gravity of the situation.

    It’s ironic and really pathetic and resoundingly sad.


    • Interesting comment, Esquire. On the one hand, I like that Amal has taken this case. On the other: I wonder if she realizes how totally superficial it is to take the case and not mention the situation that caused it – the 2003 invasion of Iraq and all of the horrible policies (of the occupying powers) that came with it. So, “billable hours,” “hard-working,” and “ambitious” can mean a lot of things, but they don’t necessarily imply intelligence. In my experience, those characteristics usually associate with aspirations toward a higher income, and the “image-conscious” characteristic certainly supports that. This is a great case for her image, as well. Perhaps the empathy that she displays on camera is also about image. Afterall, Nadia provides an excellent photo-op.

      In fact, her lifestyle indicates the disconnect between her “humanitarian” cases and how she views the world. George is the same: e.g. he is a salesman for a totally environmentally unsound product (those coffee pods) because it provides income, and he chooses to live an environmentally tone-deaf lifestyle, yet he claims to be a humanitarian. Well, destruction of the environment and climage change affect human lives as well, especially in this day and age.


      • Daesh was/is backed by many countries UAE, Turkey, Bahrein, Qatar …, all members of the UN. Not a word about their responsability. The Irak war by US and UK was illegal too and when you see the chaos that this war created with the today consequences for the region. Nadia Murad and all Daesh victims need justice, real justice and recognition.


      • Lady- you make a valid point that intelligence, by itself, should not be defined in terms of qualities that are under the category of being image-conscious. I did not suggest otherwise.

        However, where I disagree is that there aren’t mutually exclusive categories. Amal is intelligent, she grasps concepts quickly, sees larger pictures and does quantitative as well as qualitative analyses. I’ve seen it. Intelligence + diligence, in my world view, is way more effective than just mere innate smarts.

        What I find sad is that her image-conscious overshadows, for me, any humanitarian message/s.

        She is extremely bright but her overindulgence in her image, casts a deep shadow.


  5. Her focus is on what she is doing and Nadia, what she is wearing is irrelavent. She is dressed professionally nothing showing .I don’t think Nadia or any of the others care what she is wearing only what she is saying matters.


  6. Nadia is the real hero in all of this. She is courageous to share her story and to take a stand. Sadly, Nadia is one of many. I can’t help, but remind everyone of the American girl who went to Syria because she cared about the refugees and went there to do humanitarian work. All to make a difference. She was captured by Isis, raped, treated cruelly, was the sex slave for the Isis leader at his disposal, and ultimately the reason other captured women were let go and freed and sent back to their country. Kayla Mueller was thrown into a dark room with no light and forced to have sex several times a day. Tossed around to the men of Isis. Then tortured and beheaded. She was the only child of her parents who are left to grieve this horrific incident. Nadia is one of many many many women who are in this terrible situation. Nadia is the hero here.
    This is not a catwalk, a runway show, designers, or even fashion week. This is about courage and heroism in the face of evil, cruelty, and helplessness. Peace and all good to you Nadia.

  7. I’m not so sure I understand the persona for the sunglasses and huge red pillbox purse to carry around during the interview with Cynthia McFadden. Surely, she’s not carrying her court documents or speech to UN in here. Kinda superficial looking and pretentious looking, for the most part.
    If I was an attorney, especially knowing I have an extraordinary amount of extra attention on me anyway, I think I would all the more be subdued in my style, (nothing flashy and nothing attention getting) for I want all visual focus to be on my client, which is who the story is really all about. No doubt, GUCCI is loving Amal for this display and marketing stage for their brand.
    That’s one thing I have always loved about Michelle Obama. She has all the access in the world of freebies and designers, yet she knows who she is and who she wants to be. and does not succumb to sucking up to thirsty, hungry, fashion industry people.

  8. I am not sure what to think: on the one hand she has taken on Nadia for free and done amazingly well by her. Would any other barrister receive for Nadia the amount of publicity that Amal has? I don’t think so, despite the compelling story. I think Amal is using her “celebrity” to good advantage. Certainly her speech was to the point, hard-hitting and short. Amal garnered for the cause tons of publicity.
    I don’t find her dress for the speech inappropriate at all. It is simple and respectful, if a bit ill-fitting. The red bag is a huge mistake: way too frivolous for a solemn occasion. Is it a mistake or calculated? I rather think a mistake. Amal is quixotic: always trying new looks yet exemplyifing sophistication.
    I do wish she would repeat an outfit, or wear Zara or J. Crew.
    All in all, I don’t think she strives for publicity in her private life, but has found it useful in her public one.
