Thousands of children displaced from the liberated town of Hawija need urgent psychological support and safe places to learn.
Thousands of schoolchildren in Iraq remain displaced from Hawija following the defeat of Islamic State in one of its strongholds.
Many could soon return to the liberated town after the Iraqi military said operations to regain control had ended.
We have been asked this morning about the situation in and around Kirkuk. And I can tell you that of course the Secretary General is following very closely developments in Kirkuk Governorate. He appeals to the federal Government and the Kurdistan Regional Government to take coordinated steps to prevent and avoid further clashes, escalation, or breakdown of law and order. He calls on the parties to jointly manage the situation and resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue in a manner that is consistent with the Constitution of Iraq.
On Monday 16 October 2017 the Council adopted the EU Annual Report on Human Rights And Democracy in the World in 2016.
2016 was a challenging year for human rights and democracy, with a shrinking space for civil society and complex humanitarian and political crises emerging. In this context, the European Union showed leadership and remained strongly committed to promote and protect human rights and democracy across the world.
The Hawijah military offensive launched by Iraqi forces to oust the Islamic State group from its last major urban stronghold has forcibly displaced nearly 14,000 people to towns in neighboring districts of Kirkuk governorate. They are arriving in vulnerable condition and in urgent need of care, according to the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.

Guerra y hambre
Las guerras disparan hambre.
Por primera vez en 20 años el hambre vuelve a aumentar. Detrás de esta ruptura en la tendencia positiva está la mano del hombre. Concretamente la mano que dispara armas y hambre en más de 40 países. Seis de cada 10 personas con hambre en el mundo viven en zonas de conflicto. Y la amplia mayoría de niños y niñas desnutridos (122 de 155 millones) lo están por la guerra.
A failure to communicate
Communication is a fundamental component of effective humanitarian response. Yet humanitarian organisations and policy makers are responding to complex crises without adequate information on:
- which languages affected populations speak;
- how well they understand the languages used by responders; and
- which formats and channels will be most effective for communicating complex information.

The arrival of more than one million refugees and other migrants to Europe in 2015 prompted the UN high level summit on addressing large movements of refugees and migrants in September 2016. With many of those arriving in Europe originating from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, the Middle East – as a region of origin and transit – holds experiences critical to ensuring the successful adoption and implementation of both the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR).
