Restoring Values: Institutional Challenges to Providing Restitution and Compensation for Iraqi Housing and Land Rights Victims

The preliminary report concerns the continuing victimization and eventual remedy for Iraqis forcibly evicted, displaced and dispossessed of their homes, land and other properties. The victims of these acts includes include the over 800,000 Kurds, Turkomens, Assyrians and others subject to the brutal “Anfak” campaigns, demographic-manipulation policies and other victims of housing and property dispossession during the ba’this regime. Estimates of the Iraqi displaced have raised since the 2003 war and occupation, now exceeding one million.
