Iraqi Public Opinion and US: Strategic Hopes and Immediate Misunderstandings
Dr. Azhar al-Garbawi works at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a research center officially affiliated with the University of Baghdad. She also teaches at the university’s College of Law and Politics. She has done papers and presentations on regional and international affairs and appeared on TV as a guest analyst to discuss such affairs. Her guest lecture will focus on how the Iraqi public opinion about the U.S. has been shaped, post-2003, shedding light on the different forces that have influenced the shaping process. In the absence of a strategic, in-depth understanding of U.S. politics and aims in Iraq, the Iraqi public opinion tended to form around reactions to tactical US moves and policies in Iraq. This gap between strategic understanding and tactical behavior accounts for much of the misunderstanding about, and hostility towards the U.S. in Iraq.
