Encounter


IRAQ / ISIL Nussaibah Younis, Resident Senior Fellow at the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East at The Atlantic Council, and Graeme Bannerman, the founder of Bannerman Associates, an international consulting firm and a former scholar at the Middle East Institute, discuss with host Carol Castiel the challenges facing the Iraqi government in light of recent protests led by the powerful Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and to what extent this setback complicates the fight against the so-called Islamic State, which still holds considerable swathes of Iraqi territory.
