CONCEPT NOTE & PROGRAM

Five years after the Islamic State (IS) conquered great parts of Syria and Iraq, the societies of both countries continue to suffer from the consequences of the IS’s reign of terror and the effects of the fight against the organization. This is especially true for ethnic and religious minorities that faced systematic persecution and displacement. To this day, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) harbors more than 300.000 Yezidi Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the Ninawa Province, particularly from the Sinjar Region. With ongoing security challenges and a lack of serious reconstruction efforts in their home region, the Yezidi community in Iraq faces an uncertain future. Similarly, the once vibrant Iraqi Christian community has suffered years of oppression and displacement that have resulted in an ongoing exodus. Because of such trends, Iraq’s Christian community and heritage is at stake.
