Studies and commentaries relating to the constitution

Zip file (16MB)

This folder brings together a number of studies and commentaries that were prepared on the Iraqi constitution. These include studies that were prepared before the drafting process began, during the drafting process, and after the constitution was finalised. They also include studies that are publicly available as well as some that have been in circulation but that have not been widely publicised. Several of the studies that were finalised in late 2005, which was when the constitution had essentially taken form, correctly predicted that the constitution would serve as a major impediment to reconciliation and that it would even represent a threat to the state’s survival.
