Peace and Reconciliation in Iraq
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.
