The Iraq after ISIS: a Military Victory with no Future? Conférence

Conference with  Loulouwa Al Rachid, political Scientist, with particular emphasis on Iraq, currently member of the Research Program When Authoritarianism Fails In The Arab World (Wafaw)/International Relations Study Center (CERI) at Sciences Po Paris..

Chaired by Dorothée Schmid, Responsible for the Turkey and Middle East Programme at Ifri

Would the expected military victory against ISIS suffice to pacify Iraq and trigger a new momentum of reform of its largely dysfunctional political system? Pending the next general elections, Prime minister Haidar Al-Albadi faces multiple challenges: humanitarian emergency in areas devastated by the long battle againts ISIS and subsequent need for national reconciliation with Sunni Arabs; revamping a political system plagued by armed militias and predatory and corrupt politicians committed to pursuing the existing status quo; growing economic difficulties due to the drop of oil revenues, and finally, international and regional actors seeing Iraq as an arena for their confrontation.
