Achieving Durable Solutions to Displacement in Iraq: Challenges, Opportunities, and Possible Remedies
More people are displaced by conflict than at any point since World War II, and durable solutions to forced displacement remain elusive. In Iraq today more than one million people are still displaced years after officials declared military victory over the Islamic State (or ISIS). While many millions have returned, for others barriers to sustainable return remain, including destroyed infrastructure such as roads, markets, schools, hospitals; unmet promises of compensation to help people rebuild homes; and in some areas, a lack of social acceptance of returnees. This event will showcase new research on Iraq in the field of durable solutions to discuss what has worked for Iraqis, what we can learn from them, and what challenges and barriers remain. The implications of this research extend beyond Iraq and can inform policies and programs that seek to address displacement, facilitate return, and mitigate violence in other conflict-affected and fragile contexts.
