Remarks of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide on ISIL Accountability Mechanism in Iraq

January 19, 2023

During a virtual event “Options for Survivor-centered Justice in Iraq”, held on December 19, 2022, and co-hosted by the Coalition for Just Reparations, Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights, Yazda, and International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect, UN stakeholders, experts, activists, and survivors discussed practical suggestions on how ISIL Accountability Mechanism in Iraq can best serve the cause of justice and interests of survivors and their communities.

These suggestions (Position paper on ISIL Accountability Mechanism in Iraq), an outcome of year-long consultations among experts, survivors, and NGOs, draw on best international practices, survivors’ preferences, and insights of national actors to pave the way towards homegrown and survivor-centered justice in Iraq.

Ms. Alice Wairimu Nderitu, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, highlighted the importance of efforts to ensure accountability for atrocity crimes committed in Iraq so that the dignity of survivors is restored and future atrocities are prevented.
