From February to March 2017, the National Democratic Institute conducted public opinion research in Iraq, capturing citizens’ perspectives on security, the economy, and other key political trends.

The research includes a 2,000 person national survey with oversamples in Mosul, Anbar, and Salahaddin, and 12 focus groups including internally displaced persons (IDPs) and citizens who lived under the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Leslie Campbell and John Moreira will discuss the key findings, and NDI's current efforts to support democratic actors in Iraq.
