Nadhim Zahawi MP

Stratford-on-Avon Member of Parliament Nadhim Zahawi has been nominated for the inaugural Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award. The award looks to recognise outstanding diplomats and politicians in the UK for their dedication, commitment and selfless efforts in representing civilian matters at the highest level.

Nominated under the Social Driver category, Mr Zahawi has been active in creating awareness to get the Kurdish genocide recognised by the international community. Recent discoveries have uncovered mass graves in Iraq where millions of people were thought to have been murdered under the Ba’athist regime. The stories behind this atrocity is rarely known, and the MP is currently collecting signatures from the public to have the genocide formally recognised in Parliament and bring peace to those that had suffered.

Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, Director of Grassroot Diplomat said, “Grassroot diplomacy empowers the voiceless, defines a path for the hopeless, and restores faith to influencers. The Initiative Award seeks to build trust again between the ‘us and them’ and bring people of all statuses together.”

Mr Zahawi is committed to tying grassroots activities with high-level politics, and for this, his efforts are being recognised here.

Over 50 high-level government officials have been nominated in 3 categories but there can only be six winners. Join Nadhim Zahawi and other government nominees at the Vincent Rooms, Westminster with evening performance led by Euro-Vision Song Contest artist, Imaani.
