The Nineveh Plains of Iraq: How culture is helping to restore peace


SIPRI is pleased to launch a new film which describes the role of cultural and religious practices in the post-conflict reconstruction of Iraq’s most ethnically and religiously diverse region. ‘The Nineveh Plains of Iraq: How Culture is Helping to Restore Peace’ tells the story from the perspective of minority groups living in the Nineveh Plains, weaving together footage from interviews with local people. 


Watch the film and interview series on SIPRI’s YouTube channel.
