An RSAA lecture with Moe Saito, from our series: Culture, Conflict and Recovery in Asia.

Following the collapse of the so-called Islamic State, Iraq is beset by a host of social and political challenges. Foremost amongst these is mass population displacement, creating a major barrier to local and national reconstruction. As displaced communities return to their homes, tensions between local political factions, former ISIL fighters and local communities run high. Join us to learn how the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has taken an unusual approach to building bridges between communities in some of the areas most affected by the conflict.
