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

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.

Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and member of the House Financial Services Committee, will offer keynote remarks, and Greg Baer, President and CEO of The Clearing House, will offer remarks about a report released earlier this year on ways to reform the AML/CFT process.
