Amal Clooney and Nadia Murad in 1843 Magazine March 2017

economist

1843‘s February/March cover story features Amal Clooney’s fight to bring Islamic State to the International Criminal Court. The article, entitled “Two Women, One Cause,” describes how Amal Clooney and Nadia Murad, an Iraqi woman, are campaigning to highlight the atrocities carried out by Islamic State (IS) on the Yazidi people and to get IS indicted by the International Criminal Court.

The article explores the extraordinary story of two women working together to bring those responsible for genocide to account. In August 2014 Murad watched as IS fighters murdered many of her friends and family because of their Yazidi faith and took thousands of others as prisoners including Murad herself. After weeks of being raped daily, Murad managed to escape her captors and was able to flee to Germany.

Murad and Clooney bring different strengths to their campaign. In a society in which rape brings shame to the victim as well as the perpetrator, Murad shows extraordinary courage in speaking out about her ordeal. Clooney is using her brains, as a highly regarded human-rights lawyer, and her fame as the wife of a Hollywood superstar. She is framing a legal strategy, keeping the case in the headlines and lobbying governments to take it seriously; and the article suggests that Clooney’s high profile is helping to win attention for her cause: “Today her [Clooney’s] celebrity may sometimes be a distraction, but it has undoubtedly made her more effective as an advocate.”

Author Robert Guest interviewed Murad and Clooney for the piece and travelled to Mount Sinjar in Iraq to find out more about the situation on the ground. He explains why this story is so important: “Getting governments to care about human-rights abuses in far-off places is hard. But Amal Clooney and Nadia Murad make a very effective team. Amal is brainy and famous and great at grabbing politicians’ attention. And Nadia is probably the bravest person I’ve ever met. I doubt anyone can hear her story without weeping.”

Emma Duncan, 1843‘s editor, says, “We’re proud to be carrying such an important story about two remarkable women.”

Amal Clooney at the Texas Conference For Women 2016 in Austin 15.11.2016

“As women, there is a bond we all share,” Amal Clooney told a sold-out audience at the 17th Annual Texas Conference for Women at the Austin Convention Center. “

Amal Clooney has worked closely with many influential people, not the least of which being her philanthropist/award-winning actor husband George Clooney. But when asked whom she admires most as a role model, the human rights attorney answered from the heart.

“I think growing up my mother was definitely a role model, she was always a working woman and someone who is independent and cared about her career and cared about being independent but also had balance,” she said during a Q&A at the Texas Conference for Women, where she was the keynote speaker on Tuesday.

“She never lost her femininity and she believed the balance was important and that is something that stuck with me,” added Clooney, who looked elegant in a pinstripe dress.

Amal Clooney also mentioned associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as one of her biggest inspirations. “When I was a junior lawyer she was incredible to watch in action in court, how she had so many cases in her head and firing questions at these lawyers standing before her,” she explained, adding, “But then also on the personal side, [she] was just lovely and I was the most junior and irrelevant person in her chamber … and she was very charming and very balanced.”

During her keynote speech, Amal Clooney discussed women’s rights around the world, and spoke at length about her 23-year-old Yazidi client Nadia Murad, who is now a political refugee in Germany after living in captivity as an ISIS sex slave. Since her escape, Murad has stood up to her former captors by becoming a women’s rights activist and by speaking out against the Islamic State. She has been nominated for the Nobel peace prize for her efforts.

“I am advocating for the United Nations Security Council to do more to prosecute [ISIS]. I am addressing the security council next month,” Amal Clooney promised.

In closing, she reminded the audience, “As women, there is a bond that we all share. It’s a bond of shared experience. Experiences that only women go through and struggles that only women face. The worst thing that we can do as women is not stand up for each other. And this is something that we can practice everyday no matter where we are or what we do. Because if we are united, there is no limit to what we can do.” via People magazine

Amal and George Clooney with Education Minister of Lebanon Elias Bou Saab 27.09.2016

Amal and George Clooney will fund the opening of schools for thousands of refugee and Lebanese students, Education Minister Elias Bou Saab announced earlier Tuesday. In a post on his Facebook page, Bou Saab said he met with the Clooneys to discuss the initiative during his visit to New York for the U.N. General Assembly.

“Bou Saab accepted the invitation of Amal and George Clooney, who have launched a project to teach children in Lebanon through private schools that they will build in cooperation with SABIS – a global network of schools – and Lebanon’s Education Ministry,” the post read.

The A-listers told Bou Saab that the first of the several schools will open its doors next year. “The project aims at providing education for 15, 000 Lebanese and refugee children,” continued the minister’s Facebook post.

The Syrian conflict and resulting massive influx of refugees has put pressure on Lebanon’s school system and interrupted many refugee children’s education.

Roughly 250,000 Syrian children in Lebanon are out of school according to research from Human Rights Watch. Local and international organizations have implemented various initiatives aimed at getting more children into school.
