On February 11th 2016, IRIS & The Center for Gender and Development Studies (CGDS) hosted a conference on the future of the Ezidi community of Iraq, titled 'Ezidis Beyond ISIS: Genocide, Gender & Return'. The event brought together Ezidi survivors of ISIS atrocities, agencies working to document these atrocities, practitioners providing services to survivors, academics working in the field, and relevant international experts to create an in depth understanding of - and generate action on - one of 21st century’s worst crimes against humanity in the four following areas:

  • Documentation & the Genocide Case
  • Trauma & Recovery
  • Beyond Victimhood: Reconstruction
  • Beyond Victimhood: Reconciliation & Return
The keynote address was delivered by Ms. Monique Villa, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation and founder of TrustLaw and TrustWomen.
