The recent conflict in Iraq evolved from an insurgency against the interim U.S. led government (the Coalition Provisional Authority or CPA) into a sectarian civil war. Violence became widespread, especially in areas of Baghdad City such as Sadr City, Al Amiriyah, and Al Adhamiya. However, a number of multiethnic neighborhoods in Baghdad successfully prevented sectarian attitudes and behaviors from taking hold. Four communities stand out in their self-organization to prevent the escalation of violence. This book looks at what makes these communities different from other areas within Baghdad.
Chapter One: Introduction -- Chapter Two: Violence and Extremism -- Sources of Sectarian Violence in Baghdad -- Chapter Three: Conflict Drivers -- Chapter Four: Conflict Escalation: The Sharpening of Sectarian Identity -- Chapter Five: Resilience: Conceptual Foundations -- Chapter Six: Social Capital -- Chapter Seven: Information and Communication -- Chapter Eight: Economic Resources -- Chapter Nine: Community Competence -- Chapter Ten: Looking Ahead.
