1957 E Street NW, 7th Floor City View Room

This unique full-day conference brings together Iraqi students and American veterans of the war, along with academics and former policymakers, to discuss the human side of America’s war in Iraq. Panelists will offer their unique experiences of major moments of the war, including the immediate aftermath of the invasion and ensuing occupation; the U.S. military ‘surge’ and its impact on local communities; population dislocation and humanitarian crisis; the legacy of the war for young U.S. service members; and prospects for future U.S.-Iraqi relations.
