A nation must think before it acts.
This week, Aaron held a virtual discussion with Inna Rudolf, the author of “The Future of the Popular Mobilization Forces after the Assassination of Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis,” the third chapter for FPRI’s forthcoming edited volume, Iraq in Transition: Competing Actors and Complicated Politics. The conversation focused on the Popular Mobilization Forces, the role of the now-deceased Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis within the organization, the Iranian influence over the PMF, and policy options to consider in the near future.
Iraq in Transition: Competing Actors and Complicated Politics is a special project and edited volume of the Foreign Policy Research Institute’s Middle East Program. This project was made possible by a grant from GDP Charitable Trust.
