Taking part in everyday public life – practising religion, accessing jobs and public services, taking part in politics, travelling freely – is a challenge for many people in Iraq, but members of ethnic and religious minorities face particular obstacles. This report is intended to galvanize efforts to establish and maintain a peaceful, prosperous and inclusive society in Iraq. In looking for solutions, this report highlights the need to change laws and policies which discriminate against minorities; increase the availability of bilingual education; and design targeted programmes to address poverty and education gaps among minority communities.
