Iraq: Where Are We, and Where Are We Going?

On the 12th year of the U.S. War in Iraq, two presenters will lead a discussion on what's next:

Wardah Khalid is a Scoville Fellow at the Friends Committee on National Legislation, focusing on research, development and presentation of non-violent policy solutions to counter the self-described Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, as well as highlighting why U.S. militarism is undermining locally-led peacebuilding approaches in these countries and throughout the region.

Prior to joining FCNL, Wardah worked as a CVE consultant in Houston, focusing on creating a community plan to counter violent extremism in the local Muslim American community.

Wardah recently graduated from Columbia University where she obtained a masters in International Affairs focused on Human Rights and Middle East Studies. While at SIPA, she interned for various UN and international agencies including UNRWA, UNDP, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the UN Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate where she conducted research on Lone Wolf Terrorism from a UN perspective. She is also the author of the "Young American Muslim" blog for the Houston Chronicle.

Haider Abdul, Program Officer at Open Society Foundations, was the Iraqi journalist who did the "Talk to an Iraqi" for the radio program This American Life
