Iraq Escalating Violence and Sectarian Division

Join us with a panel of experts to discuss the increasingly violent situation in Iraq today and what impact the conflict on its doorstep in Syria might have on the country.


What do the recent deadly attacks in Iraq tell us about the country today?
It has been nearly ten years since the US-led invasion and nearly a year since the last foreign troops withdrew. But is there anything about the state of the country they left behind that can begin to explain this recent wave of violence?
Although al-Qaeda forces appeared to have been pushed back, there has been an increase in violence that culminated on 23 July in the bloodiest day since US troops left Iraq. Coordinated bombings and shootings in 15 cities left over 100 people dead and many more injured.
What impact will al-Quaeda's mission to regain ground have on political tensions among the main Shia, Sunni and Kurdish factions? 
Join us with a panel of experts to discuss the situation in Iraq today and what impact the conflict on its doorstep in Syria might have on the country.
