Iraq: Can Good Governance Erode Support for Militants?
The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the U.S. Institute of Peace titled Iraq: Can Good Governance Erode Support for Militants?. An expert panel gathered to offer solutions and analytical views on why Iraqis expressed a lack of support for armed forces. Experts offered recommendations to the think tank and members of government, that it should look further into improving poor governance and to embrace the vital role of the youth within civil society. Experts also pointed out that violence is natural in the social and personal lifestyle in Iraq. Suggestions were also made that the international community in the future should look for ways different tribes in Iraq can coexist peaceful regardless of tribes or religious beliefs.
