Building Sustainable Peace in Iraq: The Role of Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Peace Building

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.

Speakers include Shamiran Mako, Marsin Alshamary, Zahra Ali, Michael Youash, Ruba Al Hassani, Ibrahim Al Marashi, Toby Dodge, Hannibal Travis, and Alistair Edgar.
