Is Three a Crowd? The Kurds, Baghdad and Poland

Dylan O'Driscoll

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The diplomatic conflict that exists between the government in Baghdad and the Kurdish Regional Government impacts relations of both authorities at the international diplomatic level. As the case of Polish-Iraqi relations demonstrates, meaningful and effective involvement with the KRG is obstructed and sometimes impossible because of the ongoing Baghdad-Erbil conflict and the continuous possibility of the KRG seceding from Iraq. With the dynamics of Iraq changing post Maliki, it is important for these diplomatic relations to change accordingly, both internally and externally, in order to protect the territorial integrity of Iraq
