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 rehabilitate economic infrastructure and introduce representative government
to post-war Iraq, among other objectives. 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 assistance program has
been undertaken by the United States in Iraq. This report describes recent
developments in this assistance effort.
