In 2005, IAA supervised more than 70 questionnaires, carried out by a number of women’s organisations from 16 governorates in Iraq, to assess the current status of women in Iraq, from the legal point of view and in reality. The results were published in a book by the American Bar Association, in both Arabic and English. It was updated in 2006 under the title “Women’s Status in Iraq: An update to assess Iraq’s legal and realistic compliance with the international legal criteria.”
In 2008 the Association carried out a field study in collaboration withOxfam, on the Impact of Humanitarian Crises on Women. The study included 1600women in five governorates, in cooperation with a number of women’sorganisations. It is anticipated that the study will be published later.
