Erbil workshop on the prospects for Iraq

On 11-13 May 2007 Pugwash convened an international workshop on Iraq’s crisis of instability in Erbil, the northern Iraqi capital of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The workshop gathered participants from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. The twin objectives of the meeting were firstly to gain insight into the root causes of the Iraqi conflict situation; and secondly, to find ways to deal with the sectarian violence and other types of conflicts in order to help the de-escalation of the crisis.
