We recognise that reconciliation is critical to defeating Daesh and ensuring long-term stability within Iraq. At both official and ministerial levels we continue to promote action to ensure that those responsible for human rights abuses are held to account. Through the Conflict, Security and Stability Fund we are supporting community-level reconciliation, reintegration and transitional justice efforts in liberated areas. The UK is also at the forefront of international efforts to bring Daesh to justice. On 21 September, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to adopt UK-proposed Daesh Accountability Resolution 2379, which requests the UN Secretary General to establish an Investigative Team to collect, preserve and store evidence of Daesh crimes, beginning in Iraq. The UK has pledged £1 million as a voluntary contribution to help establish the Investigative Team.
