The opening address will be delivered by Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne. She is the founder and chairperson of AMAR Foundation. She started AMAR in 1991 in response to Saddam Hussein’s systematic persecution and extermination of the Marsh Arabs, and it has now grown to become one of the leading charities in the Middle East.

She chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Foreign Affairs and was a member of the influential ad-hoc Soft Power Committee. She has taken part in many election observer missions to countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Russia, Moldova, Kenya and Zambia, and was chief international observer twice in Yemen and Armenia.

She was a member of the European Parliament for 10 years and served as vice president of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, Human Rights, Common Defense, and Security Policy.
