Iraq After ISIS: Speaker Saleem al-Jubouri on His Country’s Future

  • U.S. Institute of Peace 2301 Constitution Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20037 United States (map)

As Iraq nears a military defeat of ISIS, Iraqis and their leaders are debating how best to sustain the security gains, prevent any extremist revival, and stabilize the country. They must shape a post-ISIS Iraq as the country finds itself amid increased regional tensions between the Gulf Arab States and Iran. A key voice in this debate—and an important Iraqi interlocutor with U.S. policymakers—is Dr. Saleem al-Jubouri, since 2014 the elected speaker of parliament. He will speak at USIP amid his meetings with House Speaker Paul Ryan and other U.S. officials.
