6 years Later, The Political Landscape in Iraq: Report for the Iraqi Civil Society Initiative

Abstract : The Iraq Civil Society Solidarity Initiative conference will be held in March 2008 to facilitate
the process of building concrete and meaningful links of solidarity between the global
movement against the occupation of Iraq and Iraqi civil society through practical projects
that support the struggle against occupation, dictatorship, and sectarian divisions.
Achieving the initiative's objectives, however, will be difficult without understanding the
problem and the needs of the Iraqi civil society. This, in turn, requires understanding of the
complex political environment in which Iraqi civil society organizations and movements operate
and the political actors with which they have to interact with in Iraq.
This research will try to describe the general situation of Iraq, nearly 6 years after the invasion.
It will discuss the result of the 'sectarianisation' of the country, the sectarian war, and
the strategy initiated at the end of 2006 by the American forces. Then, we will try to analyse
the problem posed by the establishment of a 'failed state' by the occupation. Third,
we will explain and analyse the core political issues which are still stacked upon each other,
unresolved and deeply interlocked. Finally, we will give an overview of the main Iraqis
and internationals actors in Iraq.
