Iraq: A Civil War Averted, or Interrupted?
Location: Case Center: Faculty Staff Club
Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Speaker: Steve Negus, Journalist
How did the US invasion of Iraq bring the country to the brink of civil war? As US troops withdraw, will the country continue to stabilize, or will it slide back into full-scale communal violence? This talk will investigate the causes of the 2004-2007 sectarian conflict, the new strategies chosen by both Iraqi political movements and by the US military which led to a reduction in the bloodshed, and prospects for the future.
Steve Negus has covered Iraq since September 2004 for "The Financial Times" and "The Economist", both of London. From Nov. 2003 - Aug. 2004, he was a Trainer/Editor for the Institute for War & Peace Reporting in Baghdad. Prior to his work in Iraq he worked in the Cairo Bureau as a reporter for "Agence France-Presse"; as a regular correspondent for "Middle East International, London"; as Editor at the "Cairo Times, Cairo" and News Editor/Deputy Editor for "Middle East Times, Cairo". This past year he was a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, conducting research on the Sunni insurgency in three localities in Iraq.
