Toward Economic Recovery and Food Security in Post-ISIL Iraq

KAS and IRIS publish study about Iraq's future perspectives after the fall of ISIL

In Iraq, the recent war against the Islamic States (ISIL) resulted in massive food insecurity, and profoundly affected the food system’s infrastructure. Sarah Mathieu-Comtoi, in cooperation with the Institute of Regional and International Studies (IRIS) of the American University of Sulaymaniyah and the KAS Syria/Iraq Office, addresses current food insecurity in multiple post-ISIL towns in Iraq through the lens of economic recovery. She shows that these factors are mutually essential in Iraq, and that together they form the backbone of long-term post-conflict stability.
