The University of Kurdistan-Hewler is pleased to announce the call for papers for a conference on the latest developments in Iraq and the Middle East, Iraqi Kurdistan at a Crossroads: Current Issues of Domestic and Middle Eastern Politics, Erbil, May 24-25, 2017.
The defeat of ISIS is a matter of time while restoring peace and acquiring stability in the Middle East will take many years to come. One of the biggest problems that needs to be addressed in order to achieve long-lasting stability in the region is the Kurdish question, including Iraqi Kurdistan’s plans to break away from Iraq.
The Conference topics include:
· The Kurdistan regional government in the post-ISIS period
· Erbil-Baghdad relations; political, economic and social challenges
· Neighboring countries’ policies towards the KRG
· Major global power strategies towards Iraq and Kurdistan
Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will be also considered.
Proposal submission deadline: January 16, 2017
