The ongoing tension between the Kurdistan regional government and the federal government in Baghdad are generating new concerns about the long term stability of Iraq. Critical issues relating to energy, security, and institutions must be addressed in order to prevent further conflicts and promote economic development. The Atlantic Council is hosting a discussion on these topics. The panelists will address the energy aspects of the crisis, the security dimensions, the prospects for institutional reform, and the role the United States should play to help resolve the conflict.
