The Kurdish National Liberation Movement in Iraq: From Insurgency to Statehood

The Kurdish liberation movement in Iraq represents a fascinating example for how liberation movements can adjust to changing global circumstances and regional dynamics. In this lecture and book launch, Dr Yaniv Voller will discuss the evolution of the Kurdish struggle with the aim of providing insights on the broader context of liberation struggle in the Middle East and across the globe. His book will serve as the starting point of the discussion.
