star this property answer text ​In June 2016 the Human Rights Council published a report detailing the horrific extent of trafficking of Yezidi women within Iraq and Syria. We do not have any evidence to suggest that Yezidi women are being trafficked outside of Iraq and Syria. We continue to work closely with our Global Coalition partners to defeat Daesh, including those in the region. more like this

The Foreign Secretary was told on his visit to Burma on 10 February that allegations will be investigated and that those found guilty will face punishment in line with Burmese law. We remain, however, concerned that Burmese investigations lack credibility. We will continue to press the Burmese authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice through credible and transparent judicial process.</p> more like this

This increasingly seems to be a case of ethnic cleansing. As a consequence the international community needs to see these people able to return to their homes in Burma safely.</p> more like this

We are seeking their views on how best to use the 2019 international meeting to maintain the momentum established at the 2014 Global Summit, assess progress achieved since then, and agree areas for further action. We see the event as a platform to allow the voice of the survivors of sexual violence, their families and communities to be heard and for their needs to be at the centre of any international response. We want to ensure that commitments are delivered, including through using UK-funded tools such as the Principles for Global Action and the International Protocol on the documentation and investigation of sexual violence in conflict, through new research, and through a more collaborative approach by the international community.</p> more like this
