The 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq by U.S. and British forces was a momentous event for Iraq, the region, and the world. Iraq has experienced political instability, corruption, deteriorating public services, economic decline, ISIS terrorism, and several protest waves. A new government was formed in May 2020 but protests continued, and the country now faces health challenges on top of economic, environmental, and security threats. This webinar will examine the structural and institutional defects that have generated citizen frustration as well as civil society initiatives.
