The last two conferences have focused on the theme of inclusive citizenship in Iraq; the first of those, in Erbil in June 2016, resulted in a declaration of guiding principles while the second, in Bern in October 2016, explored how these principles might be implemented within a context of reconciliation. The visit will be organized by the Hikmeh Center for Dialogue and Cooperation (HCDC). Participants will be coming from Norway, Switzerland, and USA. Among them will be the Director of Pease Research Institute of Oslo, as well as representatives of the Swiss and Norwegian Ministries of Foreign Affairs.
