Forum video course helps Iraqi law professors and officials learn about federal governance

An Arabic version of the Forum’s 10-part course on federalism, featuring experts and practitioners in the field, has been distributed to Iraqi participants during Forum training courses in Jordan as well as to many stakeholders in Iraq. The Forum’s participants in the third course on federalism in Amman, Jordan, received copies of the DVD-based course, Exploring Federalism: The Kingston Sessions on Feb. 24, 2008. The course is based on previous training conducted with a dozen Iraqi officials on a study tour of Canada in February 2006. The Forum’s Challenge of Diversity DVD, explaining federal systems in five countries, is now available in trilingual format
– Arabic, Kurdish and English – and has been widely distributed and broadcast on TV stations in Iraq.
