Chair: Renad Mansour, Research Fellow, MENA Programme, Chatham House


As Iraq seeks to rebuild itself after ISIS, lawmakers face challenges to restore the livelihoods and confidence of its citizens. Following unprecedented levels of destruction across the predominantly Sunni Arab areas in northern and western Iraq, power vacuums have emerged drawing competition between various leaders seeking to rebuild at the local and national level. This roundtable brings together Sunni voices seeking to address post-ISIS challenges. The speakers will share their thoughts on Sunni political formations and priorities for key issues in the upcoming Iraqi federal and provincial elections.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
