Few events of the last decade have loomed as large in US politics as the US decision to invade Iraq in March 2003. Ten years later, what is the lasting legacy of the Iraq War? What went wrong? What went right? What lessons should be gleaned from the conflict? And what impact will the war have on the long-term prospects for the people of Iraq—and for US interests in the region?
This event was the official launch for the University of Chicago research project, “Iraq’s Intelligentsia Under Siege, 1980-2012.” This work is funded by the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, and the event was co-sponsored by the Neubauer Collegium, the University of Chicago Institute of Politics, the Center for International Studies, and the Committee for International Relations.
