Iraqi Civil Society Solidarity Intiative (ICSSI) Conference - Oslo

The Iraqi Civil Society Solidarity Initiative (ICSSI) and Iraqi Social Forum (ISF) are issuing an urgent call for activitis from around the world to come and discuss a just resolution of the current crisis in Iraq at the upcoming conference of the ICSSI, 27-29 October 2014, to be held in Oslo, Norway.

The ISF will also be holding a special session at the 2014 Globalization Conference (which is organized by the Norwegian Social Forum) on October 31st, entitled “Hope for Peace and Development in Iraq:  Meet the Iraqi Social Forum”.  Here they will share perspectives on how, more than 11 years after the U.S. invasion, Iraqis are still struggling to overcome the effects of war and to subdue the sectarian conflicts that emerged during the occupation and have been exacerbated by the current Iraqi government (see http://www.globalisering.no/).

Activities during the ICSSI conference will consist of a number of open and wide-ranging discussions about the current situation in Iraq. Participants will discuss options for promoting dialogue among all members of Iraqi society and pressuring the Iraqi government to support reconciliation and reject war as a solution to the current crisis. International delegates will focus on how to support Iraqi civil society’s efforts to rebuild a stable political system in which all citizens can participate without discrimination or bias. Participants will  also discuss the campaigns currently led by Iraqi CSOs and supported by ICSSI.

Registration has now opened at http://www.iraqicivilsociety.org/archives/3329.
