In order to raise awareness among journalists of the importance of minorities in
Iraq and Kurdistan, IMCK has started its first (out of three) workshop(s) on minorities
in Iraq. Journalist, writer and trainer Sa’ad
Salloum opens the first session by introducing the journalists to the different topics that are related to the rich diversity that can be found in Iraq's ethnic, cultural and religious landscape.
