Searching for Peace in Iraq
Searching for Peace in Iraq is a major Iraqi and European research project which aimed to produce a practical tool for Iraqis and international organizations and agencies working in peacebuilding and conflict transformation in Iraq.
The project has been implemented throughout 2009 and 2010, and has developed three major research outputs which have been compiled together into a final report: Strategic Conflict Assessment, Cumulative Impact and Needs Assessment, Strategic Peacebuilding Proposals. The research team was composed of Iraqi researchers from South, Central and North Iraq and research teams in Romania and Spain under the auspices of the Department of Peace Operations (DPO) of PATRIR and in cooperation with NOVA-Center for Social Innovation in Spain. The Final Report has been published in English, Arabic and Kurdish.
