Iraq: Recent Developments in Reconstruction Assistance

Description:

Following years of authoritarian rule and economic sanctions, the United States
and the international community agreed in the spring of 2003 that efforts should be
made to introduce economic reform and democratic government to post-war Iraq.
More recently, the Bush Administration has asserted a “victory” strategy composed
of eight objectives, five of which are to: transition Iraq to security self-reliance, help
Iraqis form a national compact for democratic government, help Iraq build
government capacity and provide essential services, help Iraq strengthen its economy,
and help Iraq strengthen the rule of law and promote civil rights. To meet these ends, a large-scale reconstruction assistance program has been undertaken by the United States in Iraq. This report describes recent developments in this assistance effort.
