What security for Iraq's minorities?

Iraq's smaller minority groups are suffering, often disproportionately, from the violence in Iraq today. And in a country where people depend for protection on sectarian militias, they are often left defenceless. LSE hosts a public discussion examining the issue entitled 'What Security for Iraq's Minorities?', on Thursday 12 July.

Dr Hunain al-Qaddo, a member of the Iraq National Assembly and president of the Iraqi Council of Minorities, and Dr Yahia Khairi Said, director of the Middle East and North Africa Revenue Watch Institute and research fellow at the Centre for the Study of Global Governance at LSE, will discuss the current situation and explore how best to improve minorities security and strengthen their political voice.

Mark Lattimer, director, Minority Rights Group International, will chair this event.

What Security for Iraq's Minorities? is on Thursday 12 July at 2-4pm in S221, St Clement's Building, LSE, London WC2A. This event is open to all but registration is required.
