Helping Iraq’s Displaced Peoples Return Home

11 September 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Chatham House, London


Dr Nezar Ismet Taib, Director General, Health for Duhok Governorate, Kurdistan Region of Iraq
Sharon Eubank, First Counsellor in the General Presidency, LDS Relief Society
Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne, Founder and Chairperson, AMAR Foundation
Chair: Dr Neil Quilliam, Senior Research Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House



The panel will outline key findings drawn from the 2017 Windsor Conference, Religious Persecution – The Driver for Forced Migration.  Focussing on Iraq in particular, the panellists will present a series of policy recommendations for how the international community can assist Iraqi minorities, including the Yazidi community, with voluntary return. What practical steps can be taken to improve mental health and wellbeing in camps to help refugees and internally displaced peoples prepare for the next phase of their lives? 

The annual Windsor Conference is a partnership between AMAR, LDS charities and Cumberland Lodge. AMAR is an award-winning charity that works in the Middle East, building and improving the lives and livelihoods of some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people.
