dc.description.abstract The thesis studies the effect of ethno-religious conflicts in Iraq on the reconstruction process of the state since 2003. This research hypothesizes that ethno-religious conflicts have a direct negative effect on rebuilding the state because each ethnic and religious group has its own political goal that contributes to the decentralization of Iraqi political power and reunification. In this sense, the current Iraqi ethno-religious conflicts seem undeniably linked to the Operation of Iraqi Freedom and the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. As well, the misguided US future program for the Iraqis was an attempt doomed to fail. This is not to say that the current political instability was directly caused by the US attack on Iraq in 2003, but to say that Iraqi ethno-religious conflicts became more brutal, intense and internalized since 2003. As a result, these ethno-religious conflicts stand in the way of a peaceful future for Iraq, dividing the state into three main ethno-religious entities based on the Shiite, the Sunni and the Kurdish peoples with each territory of Iraq. en
