UNAMI Hate Speech Event with UN Under-Secretary-General Adama Dieng

Baghdad, 3 March 2020 - The global increase in hate speech as a vehicle to express and transfer xenophobia, racism and intolerance is deeply troubling.

Under Secretary-General Dieng,
Distinguished guests and colleagues,

Welcome to this afternoon's discussion on combating hate speech. Thank you to the team in our Human Rights Office for taking the initiative to organise this event.

Baghdad, Iraq, March 4, 2020– Approximately 3 million children and young people across Iraq need humanitarian support as they try to recover from years of conflict and violence.

Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq and head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI),

Mister President, thank you so much
Distinguished members of the Security Council,

Iraq has not left the headlines in recent months, as domestic, regional and international events have continued to take their toll on the country.

Baghdad, Iraq, 3 March 2020 – As millions are expected to visit Iraq in the coming month for religious events, WHO is working with religious leaders and health officials to discuss necessary preventive measures to improve planning for mass gathering events during visits to holy sites to protect visitors from possible coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infections.

BAGHDAD/GENEVA (27 February 2020) – A UN human rights expert urged Iraq to redouble efforts to address the human rights concerns of internally displaced persons (IDPs), especially children, calling for increased measures in humanitarian assistance, development, social cohesion and reconciliation.

In my capacity as United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons (IDPs), I have had the honour to carry out an official visit to Iraq from 15 to 23 February 2020 at the invitation of the Government of the Republic of Iraq. My visit followed those of my predecessors Chaloka Beyani in 2015 and Walter Kaelin in 2010.

Baghdad, 25 February 2020 –The Government of Iraq re-opened two major infrastructure projects in Ramadi following their rehabilitation by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The re-opening of Ramadi Maternity Hospital and the Palestine Bridge marks a significant moment for the recovery of the city after years of ISIL occupation.
