Future of Iraq Expert
After nine years of war, American military forces have withdrawn from Iraq. A Florida State University political scientist is available to provide perspective on that nation’s stability.
•David A. Siegel, assistant professor of political science, College of Social Sciences and Public Policy, email@example.com
Siegel’s areas of study include international relations, political violence, terrorism and social networks.
“Iraq’s stability going forward will depend critically on the degree to which the government is able to be sufficiently inclusive of Iraq’s minority groups and sufficiently legitimate in the eyes of these groups, meaning corruption must be minimized. It also will depend on the degree to which the Iraqi people are able to maintain patience in the face of inevitable attacks.”
