Nadia Murad, Yazidi activist, UNODC Goodwill Ambassador wins top EU human rights award
We congratulate Nadia Murad Bassee and Lamiya Aji Bashar, Yazidi survivors of sex slavery under ISIS, for the well-deserved receipt of the 2016 Sakharov Prize! This comes just one month after Nadia Murad's activism was acknowledged by the Vaclav Havel human rights award, and after she was named the first UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking.
