Education and Culture
The Public Affairs Section manages the mission's educational and cultural programs. Its aim is to promote mutual understanding between Iraqis and Americans. Public Affairs works closely with Iraqi institutions to organize exchanges, workshops, lectures, and presentations by U.S. academics, specialists, writers and artists. The programs cover a wide range of interests including economics, international relations, democracy building, American studies, environment, law, commerce, and the arts. Cultural Affairs also organizes American fine arts exhibits and public performances by American artists, musicians, and theater groups.
