On May 20, 2021 IRIS hosted a public webinar with Ahmed Tabaqchali (Senior Fellow, IRIS), Megan Connelly (Non-Resident Fellow, IRIS), and Sarwar Abdullah (Lecturer, University of Sulaimani), moderated by IRIS Researcher Hamzeh al-Shadeedi. The webinar discussed the findings from the second edition of the Iraq Economic Review entitled “Breaking the Impasse: The Baghdad-Erbil Budget Divide.” The Review addresses the ongoing disagreements between Baghdad and Erbil on the national budget and oil revenue sharing. We welcome active participation from the attendees. The report, attached for your reference, is available in Arabic and Kurdish as well.
