Discussing the Challenges Facing the Middle East

KAS, and IRIS Organize Annual Forum in Iraq

On March 6 and 7, 2019, the Syria/Iraq Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung will support the Institute of Regional and International Studies (IRIS) of the American University of Iraq Sulaimani by hosting its sixth annual Sulaimani Forum. The two-day forum will bring together key international and regional policy makers, stakeholders, and analysts for discussions about challenges facing Iraq, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, and the Middle East region in general. This year, the consultations will be focusing on the relationship between Iraq and its neighbors, good governance and inclusive economic growth, with a special consideration of the ongoing challenges of government formation in Baghdad and Erbil. In the past years, the Sulimani Forum has become one of the prominent events in the Middle East, gathering world-leading political figures, including (Prime-) Ministers and Presidents.
