Short summary
External intervention in Iraq has been widely criticised by practitioners and academics: The armed invasion of the US and its allies in 2003 aimed at toppling the Baath Regime and transforming Iraq into a democratic country. Against that backdrop the paper analyses how local actors – in my case non-governmental women's organisations – perceive and interact with international actors and knowledge frameworks.
