The National Democratic Institute

Created 05/28/2020



In late 2019 and early 2020, the National Democratic Institute (NDI, or the Institute) conducted focus group discussions and in-depth interviews with key informants across Iraq to assess the current political inclusion of women, youth, and components in Iraqi political parties. In addition to gathering data on the proportion of these groups in party membership and leadership positions, the study also gathered qualitative data on openings and obstacles to their recruitment, internal participation, and promotion, and opportunity to be candidates for public office.
