The Kurdish Question and the Future of Iraq and Syria

Event Announcement

The weakening of the Iraqi government, the Syrian Civil War, and the rise of the so-called Islamic State have reopened questions about the future of Kurds in West Asia. To discuss recent developments and questions about the future of Iraq and Syria, Brookings India is organizing a private roundtable with Peter Galbraith.

In an illustrious career in diplomacy, politics, and academia, Ambassador Galbraith has been an advisor to the Kurdistan Regional Government in Northern Iraq, UN Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan, and U.S. Ambassador to Croatia.

This discussion will be private and under the Chatham House Rule.
