ICNL’s resources and information on Iraq.
ICNL works with local partner Humanitarian Help Hands (3H) to improve the legal environment for CSOs in Kurdistan. In 2018, 3H-led discussions with government entities resulted in concrete commitments by the government to amend Iraq’s CSO law and improve implementation practices, including by developing an e-registration system to make CSO registration quicker, easier, and less expensive.
Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index
The index, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development for twenty years, documents the development of civil society in seventy-one countries around the world, including Iraq. ICNL and FHI 360 work with local partners to produce the index annually.
