The Kurdistan region of Iraq is facing an economic and humanitarian crisis as a result of the influx of Syrian refugees which began in 2012 and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 2014. The region's population increased by 28 percent over a short period, placing strains on the local economy, host community, and access to public services. This book provides national and regional policy makers with a technical assessment of the impact and stabilization costs needed for 2015 associated with the influx of refugees and IDPs. The stabilization cost for 2015 is estimated at US$1.4 billion in additional spending above and beyond the region's budget. This estimate could significantly increase should the crisis persist longer. The study highlights how prices and unemployment have increased, and refugees and IDPs entering the labor market are pushing wages down. A surge in violence led to supply side shocks. The ISIS crisis has had a significant effect on trade of goods and services. Transportation routes were disrupted. Foreign direct investment flows have declined and operations of foreign enterprises have been adversely affected. Disruption of public investment projects have had a negative impact on the economy. Based on the World Bank estimates, economic growth contracted by 5 percentage points in the region and the poverty rate more than doubled, rising from 3.5 percent to 8.1 percent. While the government has been responsive to addressing the needs of the displaced population up until now, more resources are needed to avert this humanitarian crisis and address the needs of the displaced population in the medium- and long-term. The report is an outcome of close collaboration between a wide spectrum of World Bank experts and regional government institutions and international partners.

The Kurdish Spring

Kurds are the largest stateless people in the world. An estimated thirty-two million Kurds live in "Kurdistan," which includes parts of Turkey, Iraq, Syria, and Iran?today's "hot spots" in the Middle East. The Kurdish Spring explores the subjugation of Kurds by Arab, Ottoman, and Persian powers for almost a century, and explains why Kurds are now evolving from a victimized people to a coherent political community.David L. Phillips describes Kurdish rebellions and arbitrary divisions in the last century, chronicling the nadir of Kurdish experience in the 1980s. He discusses draconian measures implemented by Iraq, including use of chemical weapons, Turkey's restrictions on political and cultural rights, denial of citizenship and punishment for expressing Kurdish identity in Syria, and repressive rule in Iran.Phillips forecasts the collapse and fragmentation of Iraq. He argues that US strategic and security interests are advanced through cooperation with Kurds, as a bulwark against ISIS and Islamic extremism. This work will encourage the public to look critically at the post-colonial period, recognizing the injustice and impracticality of states that were created by Great Powers, and offering a new perspective on sovereignty and statehood.

This book contains papers presented at the International Symposium on Urban Development held in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, organised by the Faculty of Engineering at Koya University. The Kurdistan region is rich in oil, gas, mineral resources and underground water. However, until recently the political and security issues were such that the region was unable to take advantage of those resources. Nowadays, Kurdistan is emerging as one of the fastest developing areas in the Middle East, with its universities playing a major role in this process. The aim of the meeting was to focus the research carried out at academic and government institutions with the needs of Society. The International Symposium papers included in this volume cover a wide range of topics and are written by people with different specialisations and perspectives.

Philip's Guide to Deserts is a highly illustrated introduction to the world's desert regions - their formation, their highly adapted animal and plant life, their precarious ecologies and natural resources, and their extraordinarily varied human populations. The authors discuss the amazing adaptations that both fauna and flora have evolved to survive. They also look at desert peoples, their customs and religions, and describe how many have flourished in some of the most inhospitable places on Earth. They provide an indepth study of the world's desert resources, both the mineral riches and agricultural potential they offer, and how these are impacted by broad regional water strategies. The authors give useful information on which desert locations to visit and their significant cultural, historical and archaeological sites, as well as a thoughtful look at the future ecological and social issues that confront desert peoples. An Atlas section maps the world's deserts region by region, charting their area, resources, and threats both man-made and natural. The general editors are Professor Tony Allan and Professor Andrew Warren, of London University. Professor Allan is an expert on water resource management in the Middle East and Africa; Professor Warren is a specialist in desert sand dunes, desertification and soil erosion.

"Appeasement in international Politics suggests the type of appeasement strategy most appropriate for various situations. The options range from pure inducements to reciprocity, to a mixture of inducements and threats. In addition to this theoretical framework, Rock's explicit comparison of appeasement and deterrence offers important guidelines for policymakers on when and how to implement a strategy of appeasement.".
