Following the US occupation of Iraq in 2003, and the eruption of the Middle East and North Africa uprisings in 2011, Kurds of the Middle East have been confronted with new realities that included civil war, revolutionary moments, deteriorating economies, promises of an end to their marginalisation, and even genocidal actions, resulting in the development of different political projects posited as ways to secure their rights. This symposium will examine the Kurdish experience, and consider the forms of these new political projects, as well as the potential of their success.
