The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq

The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq

Brendan O’Leary,
John McGarry,
Khaled Salih

University of Pennsylvania

The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq collects expert contributions on the consequences of the overthrow of Saddam’s regime for the Kurds and the other peoples in Kurdistan. This volume is the first in any language to address in detail the constitutional politics of Kurdistan’s relations with the rest of Iraq, and Kurdistan’s future constitutional options. The essays evaluate how the relations between Kurdistan and predominantly Arab Iraq might—and should—be remade in a state marred by the legacies of genocide, ethnic expulsion, and coercive assimilation.

Contributors: Ofra Bengio, Kama A. J. Eklund, Peter W. Galbraith, Michael M. Gunter, John McGarry, Molly McNulty, Brendan O’Leary, Khaled Salih, Gareth Stansfield, Karin von Hippel, Sophia Wanche, Paul R. Williams
