National Reconciliation in Iraq - Reality & Horizon

National reconciliation in Iraq represents the second non-Western Arab application of a reconciliation endeavor following Morocco’s Justice and Reconciliation effort. Due to its relative recent application and the problems it has faced and is still facing, it was necessary to examine this effort in analytical detail, the NGO Coordination Committee in Iraq (NCCI) and Iraqi Al-Amal Association (IAA), supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), assigned a number of scholars to conduct an extensive study that spans several central issues, the study addresses the roles official and unofficial political and civil institutions play in the process of reconciliation, their positions toward reconciliation and their accomplishments within its framework. This book is a complete content of those studies, which we hope to have met their desired objectives in the most objective and precise manner possible in an attempt to attain the desired benefit in serving Iraq and Iraqis.

Reaching common ground in perceiving reconciliation is one of the most important factors that sustain the efforts to build and maintain peace. The objective of studying reconciliation in Iraq is to get a comprehensive understanding  of the peace-building and reconciliation process in Iraq, its achievements, the problems it faces, and outlining a future perspective based on a precise diagnosis of its achievements, objectives and planned efforts of governmental blocs and Iraqi parties under reconciliation and peace building processes.
