United Nations published this video item, entitled “Nadia Murad (Nobel Laureate) on Delivering Accountability through Innovation & Partnership” – below is their description.
Nadia Murad (Nobel Peace Prize Laureate) at UN Security Council Arria-Formula Meeting on Delivering Accountability through Innovation and Partnership: Harnessing Technology to deliver justice for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.
Drawing on the experience of United Nations Investigative Team to promote accountability
for crimes committed by ISIL / Da’esh (UNITAD) in the implementation of its mandate
pursuant to Security Council resolution 2379 (2017), this meeting will consider how
breakthrough approaches to the use of technology and innovations in the engagement of
witnesses and survivors can enhance investigations of war crimes, crimes against humanity
and genocide globally.
Members of the Security Council will be invited to focus their interventions on how the
innovations demonstrated through the work of UNITAD as well as domestic authorities may
be harnessed more broadly in efforts to ensure those responsible for grave human rights
abuses are identified and prosecuted. Security Council members will also be invited to
provide their views and share their experiences with respect to effectively supporting
witnesses and survivors, particularly those that have experienced crimes of sexual and
gender-based violence, during critical evidence collection processes.
