Upcoming Courses

Since 2010, the Center for Iraq Studies (CIS) successfully conducted 11 Training Programs which were funded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR). Unfortunately, due to the economic crisis, the Ministry temporarily suspended the funding for the Higher Education Faculty & Staff Training Programs.
The CIS will continue the program if the funding is provided by the MoHESR.
