Honouring the Victims of Forced Marriage and Honour Killings:
Moving from Awareness to Action

An interactive seminar aimed at creating a multi-agency approach

This seminar aims to take us from public awareness, debates about legislation and understanding cultural and religious rationale - to a practical conversation amongst all practitioners working in the areas of forced marriage and honour based violence. Discussion around questions like: why aren't women using the FMPO and lawyers; what is happening in the educational context; what the Forced Marriage Unit and Consulates actually do in a forced marriage case; how effectively are practitioners working together to help victims.

Confirmed Panel include:
DS Sharon Stratton - MET Police Violent Crimes Directorate
Hannana Siddiqui - Southall Black Sisters
Birinder Kang - Family Barrister at Garden Court Chambers and Imkaan Trustee
Hully Wolderufael - Director at Changing Lives Project
Suzelle Dickson - Joint Head of the Forced Marriage Unit
Diana Nammi- Director, Iranian and Kurdish Womens Rights Organisation (IKWRO)

Between 6:00pm - 6:30pm in celebration of International Women's Day artist Monica Ross will be performing a solo recitation of "Anniversary - An Act of Memory: Recitations from Memory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
