THIS EVENT IS FULL AND REGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED
Political stability, economic growth, and relations with its neighbours will all define Iraq’s progress in the coming years. Demands from the Iraqi electorate for better services, employment opportunities and an end to corruption all come at a time of perceived divisions within the Iraqi Government. The speaker will ask whether Iraq’s government is ready and capable of tackling these challenges, or if the current political impasse will spark further frustrations amongst an expectant Iraqi public.
