As protests erupt across Iraq, Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi’s government is in crisis.

While the Iraqi government achieved a military victory over ISIS in 2017, a political solution addressing the roots of the conflict has remained elusive. If not tackled, popular discontent across the country may threaten Iraq’s hard-won peace.

This event is part of Chatham House’s Iraq Initiative.
