Neoliberalism and the Killing for Profit in Iraq

Lily Hamourtziadou, Bulent Gokay

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Coalition Provisional Authority ran the occupation regime during its first 14 months and directed the most extreme version of neoliberal restructuring put in practice ever in the world. The invasion in 2003 was supported by, among others, those who saw a great opportunity for Iraq to be ?reconstructed?. While the invasion of Iraq was 16 years ago, the post-invasion war in Iraq continues to this day. Even the war?s quietest months have been punctuated by moments of mass horror, and barely a day has passed without reports of civilians being shot or blown up. Despite any number of official declarations, there has been no ?turning point? towards peace, no ?mission accomplished? for ?Operation Iraqi Freedom?.
