Nadia Murad speaking at a podium

Office of the President, Department of Peace Studies, and The Delp-Wilkinson Lecture Series present:
Bringing ISIS to Justice:
A Conversation with Nobel Laureate Nadia Murad

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.

Chapman University President Daniele Struppa will interview Nadia Murad about her efforts to bring ISIS to justice. 

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Chapman Presidential Fellow Nadia Murad will speak about her pathway to and experiences as a global advocate for the prevention of conflict-related sexual violence, survivor-centric recovery efforts, and the pursuit of gender equality. After surviving the Islamic State’s (ISIS) attempt to eradicate the Yazidi people of Iraq, Murad has dedicated her life to assisting fellow survivors of violence worldwide, bringing the perpetrators to justice, and restoring both her homeland of Sinjar and other communities destroyed by conflict.

Murad is the first United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking and was named “Woman of the Year” by Glamour Magazine. Her best-selling memoir, The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State, is a harrowing account of her imprisonment, escape, and the beginning of her advocacy. As founder and president of Nadia’s Initiative, she globally advocates for survivors of sexual violence and engages in sustainable development with communities in crisis.

Murad’s book, The Last Girl, will be on sale before and after the event, and she will sign copies following the event.
