A study of Iraq¿s new political leaders and their visions for the future. This study finds a revolutionary change since the Ba¿th in the forces shaping the new leaders and their political orientation. A nationalist regime committed to a strong central gov¿t. has been replaced by political pluralism and disparate views, with no common vision on Iraq¿s direction forward. The political process has intensified polarization around ethnic and sectarian identity, which could lead to Iraq¿s fragmentation. The report suggests several ways to help Iraqis step back from this divide, including refocu

Until recently, the term “political settlement” has been used almost interchangeably with “peace agreement”. But it has broader implications: political settlements span the continuum from negotiated peace agreements to long-term historical development -- in the latter sense approaching the concept of a social contract. Generally speaking, every political regime that is not in the midst of an all-out civil war over its basic parameters is based on some kind of settlement.
