TARII co-sponsored a symposium with Boston University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations on April 12, 2019
One of the most costly and aggressive interventions in American history, the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 ushered in an era of state collapse, insecurity, ethno-religious violence, and new forms of authoritarianism culminating in the rise of ISIL in 2014. Current narratives of Iraq have eschewed tackling questions of transitional justice and post-conflict peace building. This workshop brings together leading experts on Iraq to explore how Iraqi state and society relations can benefit from peace-building paradigms as mechanisms for addressing stalled democratization.
An agenda with presentation abstracts is available here.
