Public Seminar: Iraq On The Brink
Iraq On The Brink
What does the future hold for Iraq after five years of war and occupation?
A two-hour seminar at The University of Auckland on 12 March (7-9pm) on rebuilding the war-torn country will suggest that simple solutions are illusory.
Foreign involvement in Iraq, which has created adversaries and divided friends and allies alike, will be addressed.
Other issues to be raised include the need for a capable and legitimate state, for economic reforms, for rules and institutions that enable a market economy, and for social reconstruction. The New Zealand government's policy on Iraq will also be discussed.
The two speakers, presenting different perspectives, are Heval Hylan, a human rights lawyer and activist, and Associate Professor Stephen Hoadley who specialises in foreign policy, international security issues, and the politics of trade.
There will be time for questions and discussion.
The seminar is organised by the Centre for Continuing Education. For more information phone 0800 864 266 or visit www.cce.auckland.ac.nz.
