February 23, 2017. Q&A. The Christian communities of modern Iraq have been obliged to adapt to a wide variety of changing religious, political, social and economic circumstances. From the foundation of the state of Iraq in the aftermath of the First World War through to the overthrow of Saddam Husain the Christians have attempted to deal with often highly challenging circumstances. Nevertheless, for the most part Christians have strongly grounded themselves in Iraqi society and have been net contributors. This talk will consider how Christian-Muslim relations have altered over the last one hundred years and reflect on how Christian and Muslim engagements may develop in light of the rise of Da'esh/ISIL and the ethnic cleansing of Iraq's Christian pop.
