Mr. Anderson spoke at a conference of constitutional experts on the Iraqi constitution held by the United Nations Assistance Mission to Iraq (UNAMI) in Cyprus, Nov. 22-24, 2005. He and Mr. Rae participated in a conference with over 20 Sunni leaders on Iraq’s constitutional future. The event was held on the Dead Sea in Jordan between Feb. 27 and March 1, 2006, under the sponsorship of the US Institute of Peace as well as UNAMI. In early 2006, the United Nations Development Program in Jordan and UNAMI in Baghdad requested that Mr. Anderson take a leading role in organizing and co-chairing a conference on oil and gas in Iraq’s new federal system. The Forum has circulated various Arabic materials in relation to these conferences.
