Kate Osamor, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development and Labour MP for Edmonton
“As a member of the Advisory Board, I support the Centre for Kurdish Progress with immense pride. The Centre for Kurdish Progress offers a neutral and independent platform through which Kurdish affairs and issues in Britain and Kurdistan can be discussed, analysed and debated. I value this great service provided by the Centre and look forward to continuing to work with them in future.
Since becoming a Member of Parliament and now as Shadow Secretary for International Development, I have seen the outstanding contribution of Kurdish communities to the cultural and economic life of my local constituency as well as to the furthering of humanitarian ideals including Universal Human Rights and Gender Equality in the Middle East time and again. Kurdish issues are becoming ever more important to international affairs, making the work of the Centre vital.”
