Politics In Iraq: The Transition From Dictatorship to Democracy

Within the scope of international politics, no issue stands out as prevalently as the situation in Iraq. Since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, Iraq has decided to become a democratic nation-state. Iraq has written, and approved by vote, a constitution that will serve as the basis for their government now and into the future. This study provides a brief outline of past Iraqi politics and examines parts of the Iraq constitution, making specific note of both beneficial and potentially problematic sections.
