Foundations for Peace: Promoting research, teaching and internationalisation of research on peace and the Iraqi conflicts

Iraq is a country that has been ravaged by a multitude of wars and conflicts in an unstable region. The University of Duhok, in the relatively stable northern Iraq (Kurdistan), has pioneered the institutionalisation of peace and conflict research in Iraq. However, due to the difficult local situation, international collaboration has proved challenging. This is where the project comes in, pursuing international cooperation in the field of peace and conflict research, in order to lay the foundations for scientific/academic analysis of the causes and dynamics of the current conflicts in Iraq.


Project period: 2021


Participating entities: University of Duhok, Irak; Prof. Dr. Jotyar M.R. Sedeeq
