Tomáš Kaválek published a new article on the independence referendum in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The referendum on independence of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) is scheduled for 25 September 2017, with disagreement among various Kurdish factions on its timing. The decision has met with strong opposition from major international actors such as the US, Turkey and Iran, who support Iraqi unity. Fears of conflict between the federal government in Baghdad and Erbil linger, as the Kurdish leadership organize the referendum even in disputed territories outside the KRI.
