The ultimate responsible question is not how do I heroically get out of it, but how will the next generation live on.
Peace and Reconciliation in Iraq
A future for Christians, Yazidi and religious minorities under pressure in Iraq
Iraq is considered the cradle of civilization. Already on the first pages the Bible reports about the foundation of the city of Nineveh, today’s Mossul, by Nimrod. More than 5000 years ago the Mesopotamian advanced civilization was at home here, in which Abraham was also born. But other religions and cultures have also developed their traditions here over the centuries.
Decades of war and not least the terror of ISIS have left an atmosphere of hopelessness and mutual distrust between the many different groups in Iraq. But a peaceful future can only succeed together!
Since 2017, we have been working to ensure that Christians, Yazidi and religious minorities in Iraq have a perspective for a reconciled life in dignity and security.
We are active as Political Advocates for Religious Freedom in Iraq in German politics, church and media. It is our concern that the oppressed religious minorities in Iraq have a perspective of a reconciled life in dignity and security.
To this end, we bring together various actors from politics, religious communities and civil society. In Germany and in Iraq. Committed to peace and reconciliation.
We are active in the sense of goal 16 of the global Sustainable Development Goals.
