SMB provides legal advice for Chatham House’s essays on the 2003 invasion of Iraq

24th April 2023

SMB has provided legal clearance advice for The Royal Institute Of International Affairs’ (Chatham House’s) thought-provoking series of essays focusing on the effects of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and its ongoing negative consequences for Iraq today.

Ranging from diplomats to NGO officials to those fighting inside Iraq for women’s rights, these essays are well worth reading by both those interested in events in Iraq and those concerned with the wider implications of the aftermath of regime-changing interventions globally, and the consequences of having no ‘after the event’ plan in place.

If you are interested in knowing more about legal clearance work, the SMB Partner involved was Stephen Shotnes of the Media & Communications Disputes team.

More information and the essays can be found on the Chatham House website.
