Perspectives on Migration from Iraq
A Survey of Migrants and Potential Migrants in Iraq and UK - 2013
The lack of data concerning migrants motivations and perceptions, prevents the development of effective policy. Recognising the value of this work the British government agreed to support a more in-depth survey to better understand the migration dynamics between Iraq and the UK. This research would then be used to develop and improve migration initiatives in Iraq and possible engagement with the Iraqi diaspora in the UK

Small Victories from Iraq
Ten Stories of Strength and Courage
"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." - Leo Tolstoy
Since 2003, IOM has been working to provide these families with opportunities to rebuild their nation. With the support of international partners, IOM has provided livelihood support, emergency assistance, support for return and reintegration, and capacity building for national and local authorities. Our ultimate goal is to see Iraq reach a stage where Tolstoy's words become reality – a stage where the general well being of families and individuals is not a result of circumstances imposed upon them. This book shows that this is possible, and tells the stories of people who have managed to defeat the destinies imposed upon them. When this occurs throughout Iraq, and the country is ready to join the ranks of stable societies, our mission will be complete.
