Reconstruction Issues

  • Iraq: Women In Northern Regions Could Serve As Models For Rest Of Country RFE/RL 02 Apr 2004 -- In northern Iraq, women have been playing an increasingly active role in society and the democratization process since the region was liberated from Saddam Hussein's rule in 1991. Observers say many women's support groups and NGOs have been launched in northern Iraq in recent years, and point to the region as a model for women in other parts of the country.

Foreign Reactions

  • NATO / IRAQ VOA 02 Apr 2004 -- The United States has once again urged the NATO alliance to take on a bigger role in Iraq after a sovereign Iraqi government takes over the country on July 1st. But most NATO nations appear to favor a new United Nations resolution that would give the alliance the political cover it needs to operate in Iraq.
