August 2018
Conference Summaries

On 17 May 2018 the Mitvim Institute held a workshop on Israel-Iraq relations, based on a research by Dr. Ronen Zeidel, which was conducted as part of Mitvim’s project of the unfulfilled potential of Israel’s relations with Arab countries. The workshop took place just after the general elections in Iraq, and featured Dr. Ronen Zeidel, Linda Menuhin and Idan Barir. The discussion focused on Iraq’s internal processes, the complexities of the Iraqi state, Israel’s relations with the Kurdish region, strategic and economic interests of Israel in connection with Iraq, the opportunities emerging from the growing civic interactions between Israelis and Iraqis, and the possibility of establishing future economic and diplomatic relations between the two countries. This document summarizes the main points of the discussion, but does not necessarily reflect an agreement between all participants.
