Iraq’s future is topic for World Affairs Council

World Affairs Council “Rebuilding Iraq After ISIS” by Professor Heather Gregg, Department of Defense Analysis, Naval Postgraduate School, will be the the topic of the next World Affairs Council meeting in March.

Iraq has been ravaged in recent years by cycles of warfare, a growing refugee crisis, crippling sectarianism, and the violent spread of the self-styled Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). There is widespread concern that Iraq poses a long-term challenge to stability in the region.

Professor Gregg will draw on her new book, Building the Nation: Missed Opportunities in Iraq and Afghanistan (2018) to review what went wrong with the 2003 Iraq invasion and what can be done moving forward.
