Abstract:The issue of Iraq has largely receded from the public agenda in the western world. While the United States continues its military occupation of the country, domestic political concerns, alongside the popular belief that the war was essentially 'won', have pushed Iraq to the back pages of western media coverage. Yet while Iraq has largely been forgotten in the West, for Iraqis, the war remains all too real, with the perennial concerns of human well-being, oil and sovereignty dominating the politics of everyday life.
