Recent protests underscore the many challenges Iraq must address despite the progress it has made. This event discusses the way forward for Iraq.
As the two-year anniversary of ISIS’ territorial defeat in Iraq nears, recent protests underscore the many challenges Iraq must address despite the progress it has made. Iraq’s leaders must tackle unemployment, corruption, reconstruction, reconciliation, and ongoing security issues – particularly given rising US-Iran tensions – with the energy sector often at the core of it all.
Please join the Atlantic Council’s Iraq Initiative and Global Energy Center for a conversation on Iraq’s political and energy outlook.
