This webinar, from March 12, 2008, features Husam Abdulkhaleq and Abdallah Boumediene from ACCESS providing background on new Iraqi refugees.
This webinar is part of the National Capacity Building (NCB) webinar series. NCB is a project of the Center for Victims of Torture.
Note: The "new" Iraqi arrivals referenced in this webinar were new in 2008. Obviously refugee and immigrant arrivals vary year to year, but the context provided in this webinar is still valuable for those serving Iraqis.
