A young Iraqi woman, who survived trafficking at the hands of the Islamic State (IS), has been appointed a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking. Nadia Murad Basee Taha (23), a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, is the Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime. The appointment marks the first time a survivor of atrocities is bestowed with this distinction. Ms. Murad had briefed the UN Security Council in it’s first-ever session on human trafficking in December last year. She described being rounded up with fellow Yazidis in Iraq in 2014.
