    Nadia Murad Speaker Biography

    Keynote speaker Nadia Murad and her family were once the victims of abduction from their home in Iraq. Tortured, brutally raped, and beaten, she became a sex slave of the Islamic State militants. Her quest for freedom eventually brought her to Duhok, and then to Germany. Once there, she was first medically treated and then reconciled with other survivors. ISIS kidnapped two of her siblings while also killing Nadia’s remaining siblings and her mother.

    Nobel Prize speaker Nadia Murad has vowed to spread awareness of ISIS crimes. She has taken on the task of organizing a campaign that promotes peace through de-radicalization.

    Nadia does not see herself as a victim but rather as a survivor. Her objective is to expose the abuse that women, men, and children have to suffer.

    Nadia’s outspokenness and her tireless attempts to uncover the mass atrocities that occurred in her country earned her the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018. She obtained the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. Furthermore, Nadia received the Vaclav Havel Award for Human Rights.

    In 2019, during the second annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, Nadia told her personal story. She also presented a plan of action to help Yazidis in Iraq. Murad was part of a group of religious persecution survivors who shared their tales at the summit. In July 2019, Nadia Murad met with President Donald Trump to tell him about her personal story. In doing so, Nadia hoped that he would do something to improve the situation in Iraq.

    Additionally, in 2019, Nadia received the Bambi Award. She also obtained the Golden Plate Award of the American Academy of Achievement.

    Nadia Murad Keynote Topics

    Our vision of human rights from the perspective of the developed world where we do not suffer on a daily basis for the fulfillment of our inherent rights, is very different from the one that the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018, Nadia Murad, will tell in this important keynote speech. In this speech she will give a reality check on the conditions in which people in underdeveloped regions, ethnic minorities and countries at war live. With her own experience and hard story, Nadia will tell attendees what daily life is like in these situations and how human rights, especially those of women and children, are violated.

    Can you imagine being sold to someone else? How would you react if you were not free? This keynote speech by the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the dignity of human trafficking survivors and 2018 Peace Nobel Laureate, Nadia Murad, will delve into human trafficking. Nadia will tell us about her experience when in 2014, at the age of 19, she was kidnapped by ISIS and taken as a sex slave along with 6,700 other young people. Beyond her traumatic experience, Murad will also talk about the business of human trafficking, something that does not appear daily in the news but that continues to happen around the world clandestinely and that must be stopped.

    An Iraqi by birth and belonging to the Yazidi religious ethnic minority, Nadia Murad is one of the people who can speak most knowledgeably about ethnic minorities and their status in today's world. Nadia was kidnapped at the age of 19 from her village of Kocho, in the north of Iraq by ISIS and nobody went to rescue her, she had to escape by her own feet from her captors. In this conference, Murad will speak about the difficulties that ethnic minorities experience in making themselves heard and denouncing the human rights abuses to which they are exposed day after day.
