Fifty years ago, the world declared that “parents have a basic human right to determine freely and responsibly the number and the spacing of their children,” at the United Nations International Conference on Human Rights in Tehran, on 13 May 1968.

On 9 July 2018, the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General (DSRSG) for Iraq for Political Affairs and Electoral Assistance, Alice Walpole, visited the recount centre in Baghdad to assess progress made in conducting the partial manual recount of votes from the 12 May national elections.

Erbil, 4 July 2018 – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Erbil Governorate have launched eight infrastructure projects to improve services that are fundamental to daily life, such as electricity, water, roads, and sewerage, for over 284,000 people across the Governorate of Erbil.

Erbil, Iraq - 05 July 2018: The battle for Mosul ended one year ago this month, but the legacy of conflict continues to overshadow Iraq. The events that unfolded during the years of extremist control and the military campaign to remove them left a dramatic imprint. Despite promising signs of early recovery, the scars left during these years still lie heavily across the country.

Baghdad, 4 July 2018 – As part of its efforts to highlight the significance of women's participation in electoral and political processes, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) launched the #WhyNot (#Shakobeha) campaign in Babil Governorate Tuesday. The event was attended by Dr. Raad Alwan Al-Jubouri, Chair of the Babil Provincial Council, members of the Provincial Council, religious and tribal leaders, civil society, women activists, academics and youth.
