The evaluation of the Forum has been successfully positive. The discussions held at the forum have been extremely challenging and stimulating both for Iraqi and international people. The presence of Iraqi activists and the possibility to hear from them the situation that they face daily has given us a better understanding of what we, as part of the Italian civil society should do to enhance our performance both in Italy and in Iraq.
