Yazidis: the oppressed minorities of the Arab world

Who are Yazidis? Yazidis are an ethno-religious minority group in the Arab World, most of whom reside in Northern Iraq/Kurdistan. *** Current persecution of Yazidis If you do not know who Ms. Nadia Murad is, you may only need a little reminding. She is one of the Yazidi women who was kidnapped by Daesh to be a slave to their depraved actions. She managed to escape and return to safety. Afterwards, she was graciously represented by celebrity attorney Amal Clooney, who sued the Daesh leaders in international court. Nadia spoke courageously and…

AM welcomes UK government criminalisation of online hate speech Press Release 

AM welcomes UK government criminalisation of online hate speech

Arab Millennial welcomes decisions made by the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to treat online hate speech as seriously as real-life hate crime. We believe that the criminalisation of racist, homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic online hate speech is completely in line with British values of freedom and equality. This is because rights to individual freedoms of expression should cease when they begin to impede the rights and freedoms of others to safety and full integration as equal citizens: this is the only way to maximise liberty in the…

Arab Millennial would like to congratulate Tunisia on its progressive step towards gender equality. Arab Millennial stands in support of President Beji Caed Essibsi constitutional recommendation made during his speech on the National Women’s Day (Sunday, August 13, 2017).

Men, on the other hand, were legally provided such rights. In his speech, President Essibsi emphasised the 6th chapter of the Tunisian…

Is “Islamic feminism” a solution for the Arab world? Opinion 

Is “Islamic feminism” a solution for the Arab world?

According to gender statistics, Arab women are amongst the most disadvantaged socially, politically, and economically. Arab states continue to have one of the lowest rates of women’s political representation at 17.4% (IPU 2017), which indicates that Arab women are under-represented in governance and decision-making positions. The issue of women’s rights in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is largely unrecognised due to social norms and persistent patriarchal patterns that are difficult to modify. The most important contribution that women can make to these male-dominated societies is being mothers and…

Russia: a neoconservative nation?

Iraqis often say that Iran and Saudi Arabia fight their wars with each other in disregard of the Iraqi people. The geography of the area explains how this is so. Iraq sits directly between the two. It might also be said that other superpowers, the United States and its on-going challenger, Russia, also fight their power struggles over the backs of various nations. Much of the world sits between the goals of these monoliths (at least from the perspective of a Eurocentric world map) and suffer constant manipulations. That Russia…

9 disruptive tech predictions for 2027

In the last 10 years, a lot has changed. In 2007, the idea of a smartwatch that could tell you if you have an irregular heartbeat, or that knows the best time to wake you up in the morning, seemed like science fiction. Now it is science fact. The lines between science fiction and realistic predictions for the future are blurred. So, what about the next 10 years? Sure, you can’t always make future projections based on historical trends – but we can try our best! Here are some of…
